Project ID: PA1A166
The project's overall objective is to foster the use of LNG in the inland navigation sector across the Danube, therefore contributing to the European alternative fuels implementation strategy. Framework project: LNG Masterplan for Rhine-Main-Danube.
The project will contribute to the modernisation of services in the Bratislava public port and to the reduction of negative environmental impacts by supporting the implementation of alternative fuel infrastructure.
The aim of the project is to ensure the infrastructure for the deployment of alternative fuels in synergy with other projects on scientific research and pilot deployments of LNG vessels, LNG master plan etc.
In the course of the ongoing pre-project preparation (2017-2018) a feasibility study will be developed for the construction of the LNG terminal in the Bratislava public port:
The feasibility study identifies the most suitable technology for the production and distribution of LNG.
The construction phase will use the outputs of the feasibility study and ensure the construction of an LNG terminal, including a bunkering station for LNG transfer on the Danube and bunkering options for vessels. The terminal will also serve other transport modes as a fuel station. All activities will be carried out by an external contractor based on the results of the public procurement.
The solutions might be applicable to all Danube countries.
The list of beneficiaries comprises barge operators, port authorities, shipyards, technology providers, energy industry, research organisations, etc.
