A more energy-efficient, low-emission and regular year-round supply chain of dry bulk cargo in the Baltic Sea generated the need for a Global Project that aims to increase efficiency, to reduce overall logistics costs and to make raw material logistics more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The Action will upgrade the maritime link between the ports of Luleå (SE), Oxelosund (SE) and Raahe (FI) by introducing LNG-fuelled bulk carriers. The port's infrastructure and efficiency will be developed to remove bottlenecks of insufficient capacity to handle larger vessels in the ports. Availability of on-shore power supply will be developed.
The project has received financial support from the European Union via the CEF Transport programme.
