Decarbonizing ferry boat routes in the Southern Adriatic Sea: the GUTTA virtual meeting

Posted on

The second GUTTA Steering Committee meeting took place online on April 1-2, 2020.

The Consortium has stuck to this date since the previous meeting in Zagreb (Croatia) on Oct.1, 2019. In the meanwhile, the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe has changed everything, forcing the GUTTA consortium to restructure the physical meeting, originally due in Zadar (Croatia), into a web-conference.

Nevertheless, the meeting included a comprehensive overview of the progress in the implementation of GUTTA, in both its technical and management components. The criticalities emerged during the first 15 months of the project were discussed, in order to find shared solutions and make decisions impacting the remainder of the project.

The GUTTA project of the Italy-Croatia Interreg Program aims to contribute to the decarbonization of the ferry boat maritime traffic. To this end, a new tool for computation of eco-routes based on marine forecast and VISIR model is under construction. Furthermore, GUTTA disseminates the value of the public data collected under the European Regulation (EU) 2015/757 on Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification of CO2 emissions by ships calling at EEA harbors, and is making an objective assessment for the need for a new ferry link between Italy and Croatia.
