Marine Competence, Technology and Knowledge Transfer for LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) in the South Baltic Sea Region (MarTech_LNG)
Start date: Dec 31, 2011, End date: Apr 29, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The overall idea of the project is to equip local/regional maritime-related businesses with the knowledge and competence on LNG (liquefied natural gas) technologies. This will enable them to be contracted for operating and maintaining the planned LNG terminal investments in Lithuania and Poland. With this competence the companies can specialise and form cross-border supply chains in South Baltic. Such supply chains can better compete in LNG-related tenders on the global market.The project activities concentrate on developing core competences in building and operation (e.g. maintenance, loading, navigation) of LNG terminals and forming cross-border supply chains.MarTech LNG starts with mapping of LNG competence in the regions and pre-assessment of regional businesses potential to form LNG supply chains. Next steps are forming regional groups of experts and establishing the Knowledge and Partnership Platform. This web-based tool will provide contacts to LNG experts, training institutions and companies and also be used as knowledge base on LNG technologies and as business cooperation platform. Further activities include creation of a training methodology and its adaptation to regional needs and potentials. Based on the pre-assessment, regional knowledge absorption groups are formed and regional training sessions are implemented. Finally the project plans to select businesses that can form cross-border supply chains to form an LNG cluster. After this is done, the project implements cross-border training sessions and simulations of joint entrepreneurial activities (participation in global tenders). Furthermore the project aims to promote the identified supply chains by participating in fairs and by study visits to other EU regions. Achievements: Project has achieved a major support from the business stakeholders where the project Roadshow events that correspond to expert training WP are now implemented with the industry players such as: GE; Bomin Linde; DNVGL etc. This has significantly contributed to the quality and cost of the events and will help to attract a significant number of SMEs to the trainings.
