The planning of the measures aimed at developing the infrastructure, logistics and safety of the Ferry Terminal Turku project will get properly started when a kick off meeting for the related Ferry Port Turku project is arranged on 15 December. Participants include representatives of Wega, CINEA, and Traficom.

Ferry Port Turku is a CEF-funded investment project which mainly concentrates on financing the quay planning of the new passenger harbour and purchases of contract work related thereto. The project was started in April 2021 and will continue to June 2024. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Transport programme’s committee granted 2 133 540 euros of funding for the development planning of the Port of Turku infrastructure on 15 July 2021. The funding will be used for the planning of measures aimed at improving the infrastructure, logistics and safety of the Ferry Terminal Turku project.

In the Ferry Port Turku project, the Port will be supported by Wega which will assist in the co-ordination of the project, application processes of EU subsidies and drawing up of agreements, as well as CINEA (European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency) which will act as a link between the Port of Turku and CEF.

The project is divided into three modules. The first module concerns planning of quays and purchases of contract work related thereto, the second one aims at compiling a cost-benefit analysis on the construction of the joint terminal regarding future CEF applications, and the third one focuses on planning of project management and communication.

In the kick off meeting, the project’s current situation will be updated, and the schedule of the next measures will be reviewed.
