The workshops were organised by the Port Authority of Huelva, one of the partners in the project.
On 23 October, the European consortium ECO-GATE attended an event organised by the Port Authority of Huelva, one of the project’s partners, in Huelva.
As part of the section dedicated to Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) projects, David Fernández, Director of ECO-GATE, talked about this European consortium, highlighting the numerous advantages of traditional and renewable natural gas for vehicles.
Organised by the Port Authority of Huelva, ‘Port of Huelva: Intermodal Platform South-Atlantic Europe’ consisted of four workshops attended by leading exporting firms in the fruit and vegetable industry, shipping lines, and freight transport operators.
Participants in the workshop titled ‘Connecting Intermodal Logistics Chains through the TEN-T Network’ discussed the future challenges to be faced by the logistics industry in the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) and their impact on the port sector.
The ECO-GATE project is a European Union-funded project (10 million euro), aimed at boosting sustainable transport through the use of traditional and renewable natural gas across Europe.
The European consortium, led by Nedgia, will build 21 gas refuelling stations in roads in Spain, France, Germany and Portugal.
