EU to boost green maritime transport in Greece
19 Jan 2015 - ConferenzaGNL
The EU’s TEN-T Programme will invest almost €600 000 in a study for the promotion of LNG use in Greek maritime transport.
LNG could contribute to reducing transport emissions and fuel supply costs in the Aegean Sea.
The study aims to promote LNG for the passenger and shipping transport between the Greek islands. It will bring together a number of key LNG value chain stakeholders with the objective to identify the technical and economic framework for LNG as marine fuel in the South Aegean. Specifically, the group will look into the main supply chain options, required retrofits and infrastructure in ports, ships and shipyards, as well as business plans for each operator.
The project, which is to be completed by the end of 2015, will provide recommendations to the Greek government in view of supporting the legislative process in this field.
