Port Mate - English

PortMate project

Objectives

PortMate will enhance safe access, suitable green services and joint marketing in small ports.

PortMate facilitates the delivery of improved services for port users in 19 Central Baltic small ports.

Project’s pilot ports are located in Finland, Åland and Sweden. The best service development practices of these small ports will be expanded to other Central Baltic areas.

Activities

  1. Formation of interactive step-by-step guidance by using ICT solutions, compatible with those currently used by the operators, for seafarers on safe arrival, stay and departure to/from the ports.
     
  2. Investments in sustainable and resource efficient infrastructure on land (e.g. solar energy, sanitation, LED lightning and WIFI availability).
     
  3. Connecting the small port operators with each other and with seafarers in the small ports to meet the needs for services and their availability.
