The Action aims at determining the feasibility of implementing LNG bunkering facilities in the Port of Roscoff (north-west of France) and the Port of Santander (north of Spain). The studies will take into account the conformity of the infrastructures and the equipment with the standards for risk prevention (SEVESO Directive), and the eventual constraints, to be revealed by the environmental impact assessments studies and the public inquiries. The findings of these studies will be an essential decision making tool a) for the ferry operator, to start the construction and the retrofit of LNG vessels; b) for port authorities in Roscoff and Santander that will be able to plan the design and the implementation of LNG bunkering stations; and c) for the authorities in charge of the public passenger transport in Cantabria. The project will contribute to the development of the Atlantic Motorway of the Sea as a wider benefit action, serving all the shipowners operating in the region and looking into synergies of different transport modes.
