Project "MarTech_LNG"

"MarTech_LNG: Marine Competence, Technology and Knowledge Transfer for LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) in the South Baltic Sea Region" (South Baltic Programme)

The project aims at transferring tested and proven LNG knowledge and technology to implement into the South Baltic countries that are currently building LNG terminals.

The problematic nature of the project initiative is based on a current situation indicating that declared investments in Poland and Lithuania will not be a big benefit for the regional maritime industries because of the lack of technologies and relevant competences in respects of terminal construction and operation. This will instead be outsourced out of the countries of the SBR.Supplying the local maritime industries with the LNG building and operation knowledge will allow them to benefit from the investments and support the development of new products and services that are demanded in the global market thus strengthening the Baltic maritime Sector.

Further more the creation of a Baltic supply chain will establish cooperation in between regional maritime industries and scientific institutions - locally, nationally and internationally and support the creation of cluster development being able to respond to international tenders in the future.LNG appearance itself creates new business possibilities in transportation, port operations and energy sectors but it needs to be supported by scientific and technological knowledge to ensure a benefit for the local companies.

Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

I can firmly state that KSTP is an institution where the ideas are generated not for remaining on paper or deep in a drawer. They are effectively implemented, there is always a look to the future, and a further road is foreseen to ideas. This is a feature of a solid and responsible institution. As a resident of Klaipėda, not indifferent to the present and, even more to the future, I wish that KSTP as it was, so it also would be one of the most active, dynamic and creative economy engines not only at national level but also at wider spaces.

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.
