In the last years LNG as bunker Fuel has become a subject of high interest for various stakeholders; IMO restrictions on emissions and price opportunities have established the necessary environment that creates a unique opportunity for increased LNG demand within a new sector.
The strategic objective of ON THE MOS WAY NETWORK project, which is in its crucial period from May to December 2015, is to face these global challenges, by adding local EU competences and knowledge in line with EU policies concerning the maritime and logistic domains, taking into account stakeholders needs to deliver high quality educational contents at different levels and making full use of mature IT tools.
Aims of this project are:
The development of technological solutions for sustainable transport as LNG is important to promote growth and safeguard jobs and also indirectly promoting modal shift towards cleaner and more sustainable mode of transport. Specifically, concerning freight transport, an intelligent and integrated LNG logistics system must become a reality and developing LNG compliant ports is a key part of this process.
The poor understanding of the strengths and risks of the LNG as a marine fuel is prohibiting the expansion of its use. The use of LNG in port’s required a new culture to be developed and all the actors (both onboard and offshore) have to understand their role to the safe operation of LNG fuelled ships. The project will bridge the different perspective that the crew onboard and at the port have, creating a common understanding.
The ONTHEMOSWAY NETWORK is not a traditional training activity but on the contrary is a unique action composed by a series of tools that are mixed together in order to achieve the project results with an innovative approach:
