Meriturvallisuus ja meriympäristö

Itämeri on yksi maailman vilkkaimmin liikennöityjä merialueita. Lisääntyvän meriliikenteen myötä onnettomuusriskit kasvavat ja meriliikenne aiheuttaa merkittäviä ympäristövaikutuksia sekä ilmakehään että meriympäristöön. Digitalisaation ja automaation kehittyminen puolestaan luo mahdollisuuksia turvallisempaan ja puhtaampaan merenkulkuun.

Merenkulku on erittäin tehokas tapa kuljettaa tavaroita ja ihmisiä verrattuna muihin kuljetusmuotoihin. Merenkulun ympäristösääntely vähentää maailmanlaajuisesti merenkulun negatiivisia terveys- ja ympäristövaikutuksia. Sääntelyllä on vaikutuksia myös elinkeinoelämään: toisille se tuo kustannuksia ja toisille liiketoimintamahdollisuuksia. Tulevaisuuden innovatiivisten ratkaisujen edistämiseksi tarvitaan tiivistä yhteistyötä sekä kansallisella tasolla että kansainvälisesti.

Tuemme meriliikenteen toimintaedellytysten ja kuljetusketjujen kehittämistä, painotamme elinkeinoelämän kilpailukykyä tukevia toimia, edistämme kuljetusten turvallisuuskulttuurin parantamista ja toteutamme yhteistyöhankkeita, jotka luovat edellytyksiä turvalliselle ja kestävälle meriliikenteelle.

CSHIPP - Project Platform on Clean Shipping

The Baltic Sea region is a frontrunner in clean shipping. The gap between research, business and policy making, however, hinders further and faster development in the field. With this in mind, CSHIPP targets its activities and strives to increase dialogue between three groups of actors in the field of clean shipping: research organisations, businesses/industry representatives and policy makers. By carefully targeting CSHIPP outputs to these three key target groups, and by bringing them into a dialogue with each other in events and workshops, CSHIPP increases the overall capacity of a wide range of maritime actors. Showcasing the results of several projects working with these themes enables new ideas and synergies to emerge and flourish. CSHIPP is also a strong voice for the valuable work done in projects funded by the EU. There are 14 partners and 13 associated organisations including EUSBSR Policy Areas ‘Ship’ and ‘Transport’.

Projects involved in CSHIPP: EnviSuM, SHEBA, ECOPRODIGI, GoLNG, BalticLines, BSR Electric, Smartup Accelerator
Project time: 1.10.2018 – 30.9.2020
Budget: 1.1 million euro

EnviSuM - Environmental Impact of Low Emission Shipping: Measurements and Modelling Strategies

The EnviSuM project results will provide policy makers and authorities with tools and recommendations for the development of future environmental regulations, and the shipping sector with guidance to support future investment decisions.

The EnviSuM project addresses measurement and modelling strategies to assess present and future cost and the health and environmental effects of ship emissions in view of the IMO emission regulations that entered into force in January 2015.

Available measures (fuels and abatement techniques) to meet the emission reduction targets will be investigated and their performance and level of compliance assessed. The EnviSuM project will provide tested and analyzed results on the efficiency of the different clean shipping solutions allowing the project consortium to make recommendations benefiting the environment, the health of the people of the Baltic Sea Region while still supporting the maritime businesses and promoting economic growth.

The societal impacts of emission reductions will be investigated both on the city scale and on the Baltic Sea regional scale utilizing the high technical and analytical skills of the consortium. Targeted activities in Gothenburg, Saint Petersburg and Gdynia-Gdansk will give key stakeholders from the industry and authorities the possibility to work together for a common goal and to exchange knowledge and expertise on the subject, providing extra cross-border value. As both authorities and representatives of the private sector are part of the project consortium, the tools and recommendations will directly benefit the decision making of both parties.

ResQU2 - Project Platform Increasing Emergency Preparedness

The Project Platform stands for "Enhancing the durability of learning experiences gained in ChemSAR, HAZARD, DiveSMART Baltic and MIRG-Ex projects on guidelines, operational plans and procedures and exercises related to incidents at sea and in ports". ResQU2 Platform project consortium comprises 10 partners from eight countries: Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, and The Netherlands. These partners are in a key role in their respective projects and they represent three Interreg BSR projects, ChemSAR, HAZARD and DiveSMART Baltic, all of which are EUSBSR Flagship projects (PA SAFE and PA SECURE), and one project funded by DG ECHO, the MIRG-Ex project.

Project time: 1.10.2018 – 30.9.2020
Budget: 1.0 million euro
