Project "CleanShip"

CleanShip: Clean Baltic Sea Shipping.

In concert with the EU Maritime Transport Strategy 2018, Project CleanShip will ease the steps towards the long-term ZERO-WASTE, ZERO EMISSIONS strategy for European shipping. Furthermore, with its environmental innovations CLEANSHIP will contribute to the Gothenburg and Lisbon strategies.

The overall objectives of CLEANSHIP are:

  • To ensure a steady progress towards a coherent and comprehensive approach to reduce air emissions and greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by combining technical, operational and market based measures.
  • To strengthen EU legislation regarding the abatement of ship-generated air emissions and waste waters, and to improve the implementation arrangements for land based infrastructure. In that regard, CLEANSHIP will aim to ensure both the availability of adequate facilities as well as administrative procedures to meet the expected growth of maritime traffic.

On the strategic level CleanShip will bring about harmonisation of environmentally related harbour dues and contribution to the development of a sustainable port index. On the technical level the project will develop best practice cases and technical pilot solutions regarding infrastructure for shoreside electricity, gas and LNG supply, and sewage reception in ports. CLEANSHIP thus seek solutions to the problems by policy, strategy and technology in a harmonised, standardised and concerted manner.

Project duration: 36 months (30.10.2010-29.09.2013).

Lead Partner - Port of Trelleborg (Sweden).

Project Partners: Klaipėda Science and Technology Park and other partners from 9 European countries.

Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

Our, robot constructors, friendship with KSTP started a few years ago. The strangest thing is that it was not me who found them, but they found me. Together we organised sumo robot challenge, which attracted the interest of many - people were coming to us and asking how from the ‘plain field' did so many robot constructors appear in Klaipėda? The Park provided us with the possibility to bring our engineering solutions out into the daylight, which receive more and more attention from the youth. Currently, we, thanks to the Park, are known not only in Lithuania, but also in the whole world.
