Minimize emissions by introducing a generic low-emission, dual-fuel engine technology package

The aim of the pilot project Baltic SO2lution is to minimize emissions by introducing an innovative and environmentally effective transport model and a generic low-emission, dual-fuel engine technology package that would be suitable both for new-built and retrofitted vessels.

 

The Baltic SO2lution project is va cooperation between Terntank, NEOT and Wärtsilä. The Baltic SO2lution project introduces an innovative and environmentally effective LNG engine system as well as a feasibility study of the low emission LNG engine system both for new-buildings and retrofits. A LNG driven product tanker will act as a first test bed for the low-emission technology package, operating mainly between Sweden and Finland and stopping at 21 different ports and terminals. 

The project is expected to increase the demand of LNG in the area and promote the deployment of LNG bunkering infrastructure in the ports according to the EU legislation on alternative fuels infrastructure. The project will support the development of a strong, safe and competitive shipping sector and contribute to the successful implementation of the Motorways of the Sea in the Baltic Sea region. It will also help the shipping sector to comply with the Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA) entering into force as of January 2015. 

The project has received financial support from the European Union via TEN-T Programme.

Pilot Baltic SO2lution was initiated by JIP LNG4Solution.
