STM project expands

The Sea Traffic Management (STM) project has received EU funding from the Interreg Central Baltic Programme to support a new programme called EfficientFlow, which will aim to improve traffic management in the ports of Rauma, Finland and Gävle, Sweden, as well as STM-enabled traffic flow management for large ferries that sail through the archipelago between Sweden and Finland.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The project will run from 2018 to 2020, with a budget of €4.5 million.

“We truly appreciate that the Flow Management part of the STM concept can be tested in a live test bed. Safety will increase even more when ships and VTS Turku work with STM-enabled tools,” said Magnus Sundström, head of research and innovation at the Swedish Maritime Administration and coordinator of the project proposal.

“We also appreciate that STM will be further tested and implemented in ports in the Central Baltic Region.”

The EfficientFlow project will implement STM technologies to reduce manual information exchange, improve processes and increase situational awareness among the actors in the ports and at sea. Project partners include the Swedish Maritime Administration, Satakunta University of Applied Sciences, Port of Rauma, Port of Gävle and the Finnish Transport Agency.{/mprestriction}
