Port of Huelva, partner of the ECO-GATE project, will organize on October 29 the 3rd Intermodal Platform Day of the Port of Huelva, a series of workshops focused on the concepts of efficiency and sustainability in the development of sustainable logistics chains.
The workshop will host talks on different issues, such as:
- the development of new alternative energies (LNG)
- the commitment of the Balearia and Fred Olsen alliance with regards to LNG as an alternative fuel
- the current European funding program CEF (Connecting Europe Facility)
- the network platform in the Port of Huelva
- new opportunities in the area of maritime connectivity
The Project ‘Intermodal Project of the Port of Huelva’, co-financed by the European CEF Program and with a duration from 2016 to 2020, is part of the ‘2012-2017 with a vision to 2022 Strategic Plan of the Port of Huelva’. Its global objective is to turn the Port of Huelva into the south-atlantic European port of reference, not only in the energetic and hydrocarbons sector, minerals or agri-food bulks, but also adding value to all its potential in other economic sectors and associated goods from efficiency and environmental respect.
The ECO-GATE project is a European Union-funded project, 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 and Portugal.
