EMMA -hanke

EMMA = Enhancing freight Mobility and logistics in the BSR by strengthening inland waterway and river sea transport and proMoting new internAtional shipping services

 

EU:n Interreg BSR ohjelman 3-vuotinen kehityshanke 3/2016-2/2019

Hanke päättyi 28.2.2019.
 

21 partneria 5 eri maasta; Saksa, Puola, Liettua, Ruotsi ja Suomi sekä 48 liitännäispartneria kahdeksasta eri maasta.

 

Suomea hankkeessa edustivat Pohjois-Karjalan Maakuntaliitto (www.pohjois-karjala.fi), Lahden Seudun Kehitys LADEC Oy (www.ladec.fi) ja Suomen Vesitiet ry.

 

Liitännäispartnereina Suomesta mukana olivat Liikennevirasto (www.liikennevirasto.fi), Hämeen kauppakamari (www.hamechamber.fi), Shortsea Promotion Centre (SPC) Finland (www.shortsea.fi) ja Saimaan Satamat (www.saimaansatamat.fi)

 

Hankkeen pääpartnerina oli Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V.

Maanteiden ja rautateiden sekä satamien kapasiteetit ovat rajallisia ja ruuhkaisia. Uusia ratkaisuja tarvitaan.

 

Hankkeen tavoitteena oli parantaa sisävesiliikenteen käyttöastetta, ja integroida sisävesi- ja rannikkoliikenne tiiviimmin osaksi koko toimitusketjua Itämeren alueella, jakaa kokemuksia ja oppia.

 

Hankkeen puitteissa toteutettiin sisävesiliikenteen pilotteja, tuotettiin erilaisia selvityksiä sisävesiliikenteen pullonkauloista ja uusista innovaatioista, järjestettiin kansainvälisiä asiantuntijaseminaareja ja keskustelutilaisuuksia sisävesiliikenteen toimijoille ja päättäjille.

EMMA SHORTLY


The EMMA project was funded by the Baltic Sea Region Programme (Priority “Sustainable transport”). The total volume accounts for 4.5 Mil. EUR co-financed by 75 %. The question that needed to be answered was how the modal share of IWT can be increased in the Baltic Sea Region countries. The implementation of pilot activities, their promotion for wider acceptance and information that addresses the specific target groups was required. The EMMA project linked a longer-term perspective with the implementation of short-term improvements. These market oriented pragmatic solutions were to increase the share of inland and river-sea ship transport in the overall transport system of the Baltic Sea Region.

AIMS OF THE EMMA PROJECT

 

Strengthening of inland waterway and coastal transportation
in public perception (image)

  • Promotion of better integration of inland waterway and coastal transportation in transport chains of the Baltic Se Region as well as in EU strategies

  • Investigation of regional challenges that hinder better integration of the inland vessel in transport concepts/chains

  • Development of solution approaches

  • Promotion of cooperation between separate interest groups (organisations and association)

  • Enhancement of the modal split in the Baltic Sea Region

  • Identification of potential consignors and investigation of their needs

  • Analysis and suggestion of new services in order to integrate IWT into supply chains

  • Proof of feasibility and possibilities of IWT due to pilot actions

  • Improvement of IWT competitiveness in the BSR

  • Tackling of administrative and regulatory barriers

  • Supplying IWT with a stronger voice and better standing in policy and society

  • Possibility for a real change and long-term impact of results due to a holistic approach

  • Support of MS in reaching the binding legislation on GHGs emissions targets (EU2020 climate & energy package)
