Port of Tallinn has unveiled an ambitious plan to design the hub of the Baltic Sea green infrastructure in Estonia together with the partners, which would contribute to Estonia’s climate neutrality goals and increase the country’s competitiveness. It is also looking for the best ways to convert ferries to hydrogen fuel and to provide hydrogen refuelling capacity in the Old Harbour for cruise ships, according to the company’s release.
The company plans to focus more and more on creating a green energy ecosystem in the industrial parks of Muuga Harbour and Paldiski South Harbour. “The wind farm service campus could be built in these ports in the future.
Also, the plan of building a hydrogen terminal could be attractive for the industries that do not produce energy themselves but would like to take part in the green revolution and rebuild their production.
We are developing an attractive value proposition for both local and international investors,” Margus Vihman, member of the management board and chief commercial officer of Port of Tallinn, said.
“The European Green Deal, ambitious climate goals and hydrogen strategy create a very good opportunity to build climate-friendly green infrastructure in Estonia with the support of the European Union.
