To achieve the LNG target at both ports by 2015, rapid development is required in a number of areas. The necessary infrastructure at the ports needs to be constructed and rules will need to be drafted for handling LNG. It is also vital that the two ports promote awareness of LNG as a maritime fuel, which will reduce sulphur and particle emissions to almost zero.
Furthermore, Magnus Kårestedt, Port of Gothenburg Chief Executive, stated: “We are extremely pleased that the largest port in Europe has joined forces with us in this important issue. Working together, we will have a very strong offering to the market.”
