Scandria®Alliance launched on 5th March 2019 during first meeting of general assembly

In the evening before the Conference: Regions, Corridors and Urban Nodes – Competences, Capitalisation and Cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region, the founding members of the Scandria®Alliance came together for a first informal General Assembly meeting on 5 March, 2019 upon invitation of Minister for Infrastructure and Spatial Planning of the Federal State of Brandenburg Kathrin Schneider as its first Chairperson.
Minister Schneider launched the Scandria®Alliance that is based on an Alliance agreement of the six founding members Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council, City of Turku, Region Örebro County, Eastern Norway County Network, Region Skåne and Capital Region Berlin-Brandenburg signed in July 2018.

She presented the thematic focus for the Alliance as

  • promotion of harmonised clean fuel deployment in Scandria®Corridor,
  • multimodal transport in growing urban nodes,
  • further exchange to trends like digitalisation, cross-border infrastructure and corridor development for the benefit of the cooperating regions

The attending European Coordinators Pat Cox, Catherine Trautmann and Anne E. Jensen welcomed the launch of the Scandria®Alliance and stressed the importance of such platforms for cross border cooperation. It could serve as a tool to close main bottlenecks and missing links.

 Topics 1

Harmonised clean fuel deployment and green mobility solutions

The Scandria®2Act Clean Fuel Deployment Strategy as well as an assessment of regional experiences proved the need for a more coordinated development of clean fuels along the Scandria®Corridor to achieve ambitious climate goals and to make the technologies working in a corridor environment. This was confirmed during the Scandria®2Act Corridor Roadshow events in Malmö, Lilleström and Berlin.

Thus, the harmonised clean fuel deployment and appropriate infrastructure in the Scandria®Corridor is a clear ambition of the Scandria®Alliance, more specifically adressing topics like incentives and financing of multifuel deployment, monitoring of national, regional and local strategies, cross-border and cross-sectoral collaboration or participation, observation and coordination of new projects.

 Topics 2

Efficient infrastructure and terminals for greener transport

In early 2019, Skanetrafiken, VBB Berlin-Brandenburg and Rejseplanen released updated travel planners online and as apps that had been extended by transnational and cross-border functionalities for purchasing tickets and providing real time information on disturbances in the transport system - an information that is very valuable across the Öresund. More recently, the multimodal system report - a comprehensive overview of freight flows in the Scandria®Corridor, reports on framework conditions for multimodal transport (i.e. shipper needs, business modells and SECA regulations in the Baltic Sea) and case studies on market ready multimodal transport services, providing profound prerequisites to set-up new multimodal services in the corridor have been published.

Upon these, the Scandria®Alliance will continue to foster environmentally friendly and flexible freight and passenger transport and shift to green transport in the Scandria®Corridor. The focus shall be on logistics solutions for freight and passenger transport in rural and urban areas, connecting urban nodes in the Scandria®Corridor comprising topics such as multimodal transport of freight and passengers, integration of multimodal and multifuel infrastructure in spatial plans, transnational strategies and collaboration and participation, observation and coordination of new projects.

Topics 3

Closing gaps, removing bottlenecks and connecting the dots

Within Scandria®2Act, partners organised node dialogues to evaluate their needs and common interests in relation to the corridor development wrapped up in a final status report and a Scandria®Alliance work plan.

In future, partners will increasingly act together, to improve access to markets throughout Europe and to further expand the Scandria®Corridor network. This shall be achieved by a multi-level-governance approach across borders and sectors involving decision makers and financing sources.

Major topics will be strategies for “missing links” in the Scandria®Corridor, lessons learnt from Scandria®2Act project, financial instruments, governance, cooperation with stakeholders or planning and prioritisation of new infrastructure projects.

Topics 4

Automatisation and intelligent transport systems (ITS)

Partner furthermore agreed to intesnify cooperation on faster, simpler and more efficient transport through data-based mobility concepts reducing emissions of air pollutants in the Scandria®Corridor with a focus on autonomous vehicles, optimisation of traffic flow and safety.

Activities shall concentrate on improved transport information and ticketing, research and development (R&D), best practice examples as well as seminars with regard to new technologies in this field.

Scandria®2Act for cleaner transport

Good but not good enough

 

Assessment report reveals that clean fuel deployment is lacking speed in Northern Scandria®Corridor

One of the key findings is that clean fuel deployment in the Northern Scandria®Corridor is developing too slow to reach desired national and EU/EEA targets for reduction of CO2 emissions from transport sector. Stronger national incentives are important to foster infrastructure development and the use of clean fuels.

Joint truck-driver survey

Asking more than 3,000 truck drivers at 12 ports in Western and Southern Sweden, the Öresund-Bridge and the port of Rostock, a new picture of truck based freight transport crossing the Baltic Sea along the Scandria®Corridor will be generated.

SECA effects on transport flows

A Finnish-Danish investigation will verify if SECA changed transport flows along the Scandria®Corridor. As first experiences and data are available, freight flows, changes in modal split and route selection along selected ferry links are analyzed.

Scandria®2Act investigations on multimodal transport

Road transport further gained since 2006

Several Scandria®2Act investigations on the potential for multimodal transport povide evidence that there is more than sufficient volumes to be shifted from road to more environmentally sound transport modes.
Since 2006, road transport gained more market share in long distance freight transport than other modes as rail or sea.
Thus setting up new multimodal services is a challenging task under current market conditions.

   

 

From 2016 to 2017, the Swedish Transport Administration and ROSTOCK PORT investigated freight traffic passing through the port of Rostock and 10 Swedish ports by interviewing 2,300 truck drivers.

 

Scania’s freight hubs expected to continue their growth. But modal shift to reach environmental and climate goals might be difficult to reach without further action a recent study reveals that was commissioned by Region Skane within the Scandria®2Act project.

   

 

More than sufficient volume at hand for a new ferry / RoRo or rail services to Greater Oslo region.

First conclusions underline the need for coordinated actions of corridor regions

Passing the project halftime, the Scandria®2Act partnerships puts first of its results for public discussion. Striving for clean and efficient transport in and beyond the Scandria®Corridor regions, highlight the need for further action to drive passenger and freight to more sustainability.

From April to June 2018,  Scandria®2Act partners contributed to the TEN-T Days 2018 in Ljubljana, the Nordic Clean Energy Week and the Fehmarnbelt Days 2018 in Malmö as well as to the 9th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region; reaching a vast variety of stakeholders discussing with them very relevant improvements in the Scandria®Corridor.

During the TEN-T Days the representatives of the European Commission expressed their willingness to support the preparation of a two-track electriefied railway between Angermünde and Szczecin at the German-Polish border, better linking the metropoles of Berlin and Szczecin incl. its Baltic Sea ports.

Current works on the Scandria Clean Fuel Deployment Strategy show clearly; that policy framework is a driving factor for the establishment of clean fuels. But it doesn't only point to national and European policy levels - though very relevant - but shows that regions can do a lot and push clean fuel deployment as a comparison of Norwegian and German policies and implementation revealed. During the Nordic Clean Energy Week Scandria®2Act organised jointly with the GREAT project a joint opening session for the Green Mobility Day gathering experts of European range. The session underlined the common goals and the challenges that all regions are facing. And the need for a collaborative approach being inclusive for different kinds of alternative fuels and propulsion technologies.

FBD2018 Panel1

During the Fehmarnbelt Days 2018 the projects TENTacle and Scandria®2Act organised a joint session “Future transport and logistics in the Fehmarnbelt Region - How to be prepared for changing cargo flows?” where results of the Swedish Transport Transportation investigation of cargo flows in Southern and Western Sweden as well as of an investigation of hubs in Skane region were presented. During two panel discussions it was controversely discussed whether the new Fehmarnbelt fixed link will benefit road based transport or rail based transport and whether further action is needed to achieve the ambitious policy goals. It became evident that policy should create a framework allowing for a level playing field of road and rail transport and that freight flow development needs to be carefully followed to avoid the arising of new bottlenecks in the hinterland.
