Sustainable Motorway of the Sea Immingham-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 two modern mid-/ large-size RoRo ships. It will install scrubber technologies on Begonia and Petunia Seaways that ensure regular, reliable and frequent (6 departures per week and direction) maritime transport service between the TEN-T category A seaports of Immingham (UK) 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, as well as reliability will be improved by upgrading the intermodal handling equipment (Gothenburg) and installing a traffic management system with (live) weight measurements (Immingham).

Funding decisions for all the selected 2013 actions have been adopted and the projects are ongoing.
