Sustainable Motorway of the Sea Ghent-Gothenburg through environmental upgrade and compliance while maintaining competitiveness of short sea shipping

The project covers all necessary technical, supply and market measures related to the environmental upgrade of three modern mid-/ large-size RoRo ships. It will install scrubber technologies on Freesia, Magnolia and Primula Seaways that ensure regular, reliable and frequent (6 departures per week and direction) maritime transport service between the TEN-T category A seaports of Ghent (Belgium) and Gothenburg (Sweden).

 

The project will also make some quality and viability improvements of the maritime link and port terminals. Port handling, terminal and vessel management and reliability will be improved by upgrading the intermodal handling equipment (Gothenburg) and installing a traffic management system with (live) weight measurements (Ghent).

 

The project will be implemented jointly by companies of DFDS group, ship owners and operators, as well as relevant port terminal operators.
