Sustainable Trelleborg-Świnoujście MoS services based on upgrading port infrastructure, developing intermodal transport and integrating hinterland corridors
The project, part of Priority Project 21 (Motorways of the Sea), covers works and studies with the objective to develop the Motorways of the Sea infrastructure at the Port of Trelleborg, upgrade ICT in Trelleborg, and prepare grounds for the construction of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering facility at Świnoujście. By the extension of its fairway, the Port of Trelleborg will ensure safe and efficient ship manoeuvres and increased sea-based capacity and accessibility. Two breakwaters and two pier heads will be built, and an on-shore power supply will be established at the Port of Trelleborg. The intermodal terminal will be enlarged and upgraded in the new eastern part of the Port of Trelleborg. 70% of storm and rainwaters will be treated before entering the Baltic Sea thanks to modernisation of the infrastructure. The required ground works, erection of drainage and water management systems as well as the establishment of monitoring and steering devices at the terminal will be carried out. In addition, increased safety and quality of trailer handling at the Port will be ensured by the modernisation of the port operations. The new facilities will be allow the immediate coordination actions and reporting to integrated transport chain actors. A new, state-of-the-art and efficient port traffic management system will strengthen Trelleborg-Świnoujście maritime link. A study on the LNG organisation will be commissioned by the Port of Świnoujście. When these investments are completed, the maritime link between Trelleborg and Świnoujście will be able to prepare for proper handling of the shipping lines’ ferries, which are expected to be up to 40% larger than the currently deployed ships.
