The Baltic Future Port project kicks off in Lübeck
The Lübeck Port Authority (LPA), together with eight partners, will work on digitalising port operations by establishing a 5G network.
The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has granted the LPA €3.9m to furnish the Skandinavienkai and Seelandkai harbours with the latest generation technology for broadband cellular networks.
The overarching aim of the Baltic Future Port project is providing real-time communication, thanks to which ro-ro operations will become more efficient, hence the overall handling capacity will increase.
The initiative will run till end-2023.
Apart from the LPA, the consortium comprises CDO, Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft (LHG), TraveKom, Baltic Rail Gate, Titus Research, TT-Line, the Technical University of Applied Sciences Lübeck, and the University of Lübeck.
