The Action is part of a Global project whose objective is to create accessibility to the northern European markets and to create an effective, smooth and sustainable connection between sea and land transport in the Finnish and Swedish ports. The overall objective of the Action is to improve energy-efficiency in port operations and shipping, provide onshore power and reception of ship waste and wastewater. This will contribute to the development of sustainable, more environmental friendly Motorways of the Sea services between Sweden and Finland. The Action will provide high-level environmental services, according to the requirements of the MARPOL Annex VI. The energy-efficient services support the aims of low carbon transport. The Action will develop port services that help reducing the environmental impact of shipping and facilitating for shipping to comply with the new environmental requirements and goals primarily regarding sulphur oxides, waste management and carbon emissions. These port services include onshore power supply, reception facilities for sewage and scrubber waste.
