GUTTA – savinG fUel and emissions from mariTime Transport in the Adriatic region

GUTTA project will contribute to the decarbonization of the cross-border ferryboat traffic between Italy and Croatia.

30 Months from 01/01/2019 to 30/06/2021
Funded by
  • 2014-2020 Interreg V-A
  • Italy – Croatia CBC Programme

Coordinating organization
  • CMCC Foundation - Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change

CMCC Scientific Leader
CMCC Project manager

General aims

GUTTA’s main objective are: (1) to support the decarbonisation of the existing cross border maritime links between Italy and Croatia through optimized operations based on a computational tool using meteo-marine forecast; (2) to disseminate the value of the data collected under the EU Regulation 757/15 on MRV (Monitoring/Reporting/Verification) of CO2 emissions; (3) to prepare the ground for a new ferry connection between Italy and Croatia.

Furthermore, GUTTA’s communication strategy will involve three target groups: the general public of EU citizens, the maritime sector, and related technical and scientific communities.


CMCC is GUTTA scientific coordinator and project manager, and is involved in all communication activities, including stakeholders’ involvement. Moreover, CMCC is responsible for the development of the eco-routes tool based on development of VISIR model.

Expected results

GUTTA will develop a computational capacity to plan low-carbon ferry routes in the programme area, will contribute to give visibility to the data collected under the EU-MRV Regulation, and will support the establishment of a new maritime route between Italy and Croatia, resulting in a visible change in cross border territorial connectivity and cohesion.
