CLEANSHIP - completed 2013
On September 2 and 3 in 2013 the final conference of the EU project CLEANSHIP was held, where the Port of Trelleborg has been the Lead Partner. The project lasted for 3.5 years and resulted in several hands-on technical and administrative solutions for a cleaner Baltic Sea. We focused on the design of an environmental index for the Baltic ports, a system of environmentally differentiated port fees, technical solutions and infrastructure to alternative ship fuels, electrical connection of moored ships and facilities for receiving sewage from ships. Our hope is that the CLEANSHIP report, which contains our recommendations regarding a greener shipping, greener ports and sea ports, will be respected and that our results will be exploited and disseminated to stakeholders around the Baltic Sea.
The project had 50 partners whereof 20 partners with budget and Port of Trelleborg was lead partner in the project.
The project’s results and recommendations are available on http://www.clean-baltic-sea-shipping.eu/
Green EFFORTS - completed 2014
Green EFFORTS project had as primary objective to reduce energy consumption and improve energy mix to make it cleaner and to develop standardized control systems by modelling. Simulation models was developed to monitor the processes and to get a detailed picture of the energy consumption. The project also developed an implementation strategy together with education and motivation programs to increase awareness of energy consumption and its impact on the environment and the economy. Green EFFORTS was based on the material that was developed by the universities in a Europe based projects that were completed in 2009, called Effective Operations in Ports. Port of Trelleborg are delighted to have been selected to participate in the project together with partners with proven expertise in the various issues relating to environment. We also see that it is a supplement to the project we are responsible for – Clean Ship and even in our efforts to reduce energy consumption. Participation strengthens the port’s position as the Baltic climate smartest port. Concretely, this means besides we must help to address environmental issues that we also get grants for something that we would perform whatever in our environmental plan.
Lead partner was Jacobs University Bremen.

MoS Green Bridge - completed 2014
A far-reaching project that includes the ports in Trelleborg, Lübeck and Rostock, and TT-Line. To modernise and adapt the ports’ capacities for larger, more environmentally friendly vessel, new breakwaters, a new intermodal terminal, rainwater cleaning, the new ferry quay 10 and more are being built.
Lead partner was TT-Line.
MoS Königslinien - completed 2012
NIB - wastewater station completed 2012
PORTKORT - completed 2006
One of the port’s first EU project was a TEN-T project, the Portkort-project with a focus on IT and security. The project was completed in 2006 and the background of the project was that we needed to get effective control of the units that arrived at the port. In this project, we developed a new cargo handling systems with computers used in the reach stackers and tug masters and a security monitoring in the form of our first inspection facility.
Lead partner was Port of Trelleborg.
Vision 2005 - completed 2009
Our second TEN-T projects that we ran ourselves and in line with our Vision 2005. A new railway berth was completed in mid-2007. Modernization of check-in and check-out areas were completed in spring 2007. The new logistics centre was launched, and the first phase of the new intermodal terminal as well. In total, the Port of Trelleborg in a few years will have 10 RoRo modes for handling both road to rail vehicles. This extension enables a fifty percent traffic growth. The rebuilding of this phase was completed in 2009 and cost about 450 million, making it the largest investment in the port’s history. The background to the project is that the Port of Trelleborg believes in a strong increase in shipments in the South Baltic area over the next few years as a result of increased trade, not least with the EU’s new Member States. We also believe that the future freight routes between Scandinavia and Europe now is taking shape. With the implementation of the “Vision” in 2005 is the port well equipped to meet the future transport demand.
Lead partner was Port of Trelleborg.

Sustainable Trelleborg-Swinousjcie MoS Services - completed 2015
Project partners: Port of Trelleborgs, Swedish Transport Agency, Port of Szczecin Świnoujście and Swinoujscie Ferry Terminal. The project, covered 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. New breakwaters and two pier heads will be built, and four berths will be prepared for on-shore power supply at the Port of Trelleborg.
The intermodal terminal will be enlarged and upgraded in the new eastern part of the Port of Trelleborg. Cleaning of the ports storm water and one third of the storm water from the city will give a 70% removal of pollutants before the rainwater entering the Baltic Sea thanks to modernisation of the infrastructure.
A study on the LNG organisation will be commissioned by the Port of Świnoujście and a study on IT will be made by Swinoujscie Ferry Terminal. 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.
Lead partner was Port of Trelleborg.
SWIFTLY GREEN - completed 2015
