Lübeck-Helsinki's Hansalink 2 project gets CEF funding

The Lübeck Port Authority (LPA), the terminal operator Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH (LHG), and the Port of Helsinki have received a €3.4m-big grant from the EU's Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for greening their operations.

Both ports will invest in onshore power supply (two berths to be equipped at the Skandinavienkai in Lübeck-Travemünde and two in Helsinki as well).

The LPA will set up new rail & road gate systems, while the one at Helsinki's Vuosaari will be upgraded, too.

At the same time LHG will invest in a new terminal operating system.

The Hansalink 2 project has kicked off in February and will have been completed by June 2023 the latest.
