About the project

Port of  Klaipeda (Lithuania) is part of the core network of maritime ports located on the Scandinavian-Mediterranean and North-Baltic Sea Core Network Corridors respectively.

HEKLA project aims to reduce the air pollution in maritime transport within Baltic Sea region by development of infrastructure facilities to provide a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as an alternative fuel in the Port of Klaipeda, Klaipėdos Nafta and Port of Helsingborg.

The LNG infrastructure deployment significantly advances the global project of developing an LNG bunkering network in the ports of the Baltic Sea Region and aims to trigger broader LNG market development as well as to encourage ship-owners into developing  more LNG propulsion vessels.
