Project Summary

Environmental pressure in port areas and in urban areas close to ports is high owing to emissions from ships, port machinery and transport to/from the port areas. LNG is proposed as a low-carbon clean fuel for marine transport in port areas. The boost of LNG for marine and terrestrial propulsion may be a key to enhance the sustainability of port areas, protecting health of population and cultural heritage. However distribution networks and port infrastructures for the bunkering of LNG-powered ships requires technologies and solutions assuring a high level of safety in touristic areas of the Adriatic and Ionian sea, avoiding trade-offs among environment protection and safety of passengers and personnel. The overall objective of the SUPER-LNG PLUS project is to increase the level of safety, environmental quality and sustainability of LNG maritime transportation in the Adriatic and Ionian seas, while the goals are to "Promote the SUPER-LNG project outcomes and results to national/regional/ level" and also to "promote the use of project outcomes to potential benificiaries." These goals will be achieved by the following actions: 1) Organisation of three meetings in the countries of the benificiaries, Greece, Italy and Slovenia, either in person or online open to the public (granted action 1 out of the pre-defined menu) ; 2) Organisation of a workshop within the international conference Loss Prevention 2022, either in person or online; 3) Organisation of a training activity in Greece for Safety of LNG at ports, either in person or on line (granted action 2 out of the pre-defined menu) and 4) Enhancement of the first call delivered moodle platform's data and operability on LNG safety and security at ports (granted action 6 out of the pre-defined menu). The Enhancement will be performed on the Consequence analysis of LNG accidental released scenarios at port areas, by CFD modeling and estimation of safety zones for the population and emergency responders.
The main benificiaries will be regional, national and port authorities. The project will contribute to the sustainable transport and mobility solutions by supporting safe use of LNG, as a fuel, in the ADRION area.

Project Summary

Environmental pressure in port areas and in urban areas close to ports is high owing to emissions from ships, port machinery and transport to/from the port areas. LNG is proposed as a low-carbon clean fuel for marine transport in port areas. The boost of LNG marine and terrestrial propulsion may be a key to enhance the sustainability of port areas, protecting health of population and cultural heritage. However distribution networks and port infrastructures for the bunkering of LNG-powered ships requires technologies and solutions assuring a high level of safety in touristic areas of the Adriatic and Ionian see, avoiding trade-offs among environment protection and safety of passengers and personnel. The overall objective of the project is to increase the level of safety, environmental quality and sustainability of LNG maritime transportation in the Adriatic seas. It aims at providing a uniform framework to support the implementation of technical systems for the distribution and supply of LNG in port areas, meeting the requirements of the Seveso Directive (Directive 2012/18/EU).
The main outputs of the project are:
1) A strategy for harmonized guidelines for the safety assessment of LNG supply systems in the Adriatic-Ionian area, sharing experience and practices derived from safety and security directives applied in conventional facilities
2) An Action Plan, so as to share among EU the framework of the technical guidelines and best practices addressing the standardization of the technological solutions proposed for LNG supply
3) Creation of a network establishing a permanent educational system in the area of safety and forming experts for port operators, maritime educational instructions, public authorities, and other stakeholders 
The main benificiaries will be regional, national and port authorities. The project will contribute to the sustainable transport and mobility solutions by supporting safe use of LNG, as a fuel, in the ADRION area.
