Green fuel infrastructure funding for France

LNG Industry,

The EU’s TEN-T Programme will provide nearly €500 000 in funding for a regional project supporting the use of alternative fuels, particularly LNG, in the Seine River and the French Channel area.

The project is expected to reduce environmental impact and cut down on fuel consumption in water transport.

The project aims to introduce greener fuels in French regional water transport and pave the way to their wide deployment in line with the new EU requirements on the reduction of maritime transport emissions.

The study will focus on the regulation, safety and installation aspects of the necessary infrastructure to support the deployment of alternative fuels, such as LNG. It will also transfer knowledge to stakeholders in eight ports through a specific training programme preparing the participants on the use of low emission fuels.

The project is to be completed by December 2015.
