The Action, which is part of the Global Project, aims to upgrade the Atlantic Arch by deploying innovative Exhaust Gas and Water Cleaning System (EGWCS) that shall reduce air emissions of two ferry passenger and freight liner services operating on the Atlantic and the North Sea Mediterranean corridors between the ports of Cork, Roscoff and Plymouth.
The Action pursues the following objectives:
To green the Atlantic Arch by (1) Reducing sulphur emission pursuant to the rules of Annex VI of the MARPOL Convention on atmospheric sulphur emissions; (2) Reducing other types of emission (e.g. NOx, particles); and (3) Studying the EGWCS sludge logistics and processing in shore based waste processing plants.
To develop a compatible electronic data exchange system between Port authorities and ship owners that shall lead to reduce administrative congestion and facilitate freight and passenger flow.
