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.

Work in Progress

Learning clean fuel lessons

Scandria®2Act partners analysed the experiences made in the past, such as how municipalities can finance clean fuel infrastructure, whether a multi-fuel station is a good idea and how electric mobility in city logistics can be introduced.

Investigation of RoRo services after SECA becoming effective

Freight flows from Finland to Germany tend to favour mostly the road route along the North Sea - Baltic Corridor despite the drop in marine fuel oil prices suggest interim results of an investigation carried out by Technical University of Denmark in cooperation with the University of Turku in Scandria®2Act.

Improving development through European cooperation

Brandenburg Minister Kathrin Schneider and Berlin Senator Katrin Lompscher sign long-term cooperation agreement with Scandinavian regions along the Scandria®Corridor.
