Baltic Transport 2013 highlights - Europe goes LNG

Seven new TEN-T projects for LNG investments.

These projects will receive altogether EUR 105 mln for developing Liquefied Natural Gas as a transport fuel. It is the first step in establishing a Europe-wide web of LNG bunkering facilities, preparing the European Union for more ships propelled by gas.

Two initiatives are located in the Baltic Sea region – the ‘LNG Rotterdam Gothenburg’ (2012-EU-21003-P) and the ‘LNG bunkering infrastructure solution and pilot actions for ships operating on the Motorway of the Baltic Sea’ (2012-EU-21009-P) projects.

The first of the abovementioned ideas will receive EUR 34.27 mln (20% of the total cost) for establishing LNG facilities in the ports of Rotterdam and Gothenburg. The ‘LNG Rotterdam Gothenburg’ initiative has received the second biggest LNG fund aid.

The latter project will get EUR 23.1 mln (30% of the total cost) for introducing efficient and economically sound solutions that will meet the Sulphur Directive in the Baltic and North Seas (a new bunker terminal in Brofjorden in Sweden is planned along with technical studies and full-scale pilot actions with the use of commercial vessels). The project aims to set up a complete supply & transport infrastructure (from a terminal to a bunker vessel and then to an LNG-fuelled ship).

Other chosen projects are: ‘Flexible LNG bunkering value chain on the Spanish Mediterranean coast’ (2012-ES-92034-S; EUR 1.04 mln/50% of total expenses); ‘LNG hub in the north-western Iberian Peninsula’ (2012-ES-92068-S; EUR 0.60 mln/50%); ‘SEAGAS’ (2012-EU-21006-S; EUR 1.04 mln/50%); ‘LNG Masterplan for Rhine-Main-Danube’ (2012-EU-18067-S; EUR 40.26 mln/50%), and last but not least – ‘Study to test the potential of Bio-LNG to contribute to European renewable energy targets based on a pilot refuelling and storage network trialled with HGV fleet operators in the UK’ (2012-UK-26061-S; EUR 5.74 mln/35%).
