PRJ – SUSPORT(local)
/ SO 4.1
€ 7.1 MLN
The main objective of SUSPORT is to enhance the environmental sustainability and energy efficiency of the ports in the Programme Area through increased institutional cooperation to create the basis for coordinated and permanent governance in the context of port environmental sustainability and energy efficiency at cross-border level, jointly developing action plans and a long-term strategy, increasing coordination and cooperation between ports to strengthen sustainability and competitiveness.
Through SUSPORT, ports of the Programme Area, will be able to share best practices and develop common methodologies for environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, to be tested in concrete pilot actions significantly improving the environmental performance of maritime transport in the whole Programme Area.
SUSPORT - PORT NETWORK AUTHORITY OF THE EASTERN ADRIATIC SEA
Public authorities: local, regional and national
Regional development agencies
Enterprises, transport operators
Education and training organizations, universities and research institutions
Ports of the Programme area do not have a common model of environmental planning and energy efficiency, and adopt mitigation measures in a non-coordinated way, with a non-homogeneous result in terms of environmental protection. SUSPORT intends to strengthen the institutional capacity and cross-border governance of the ports of the Programme Area in this sector, enhancing the environmental sustainability and energy efficiency.
In particular, a model of cross-border plan for environmental sustainability and port energy efficiency will be developed, declined in each port through an ad hoc plan (WP3) which will be tested in concrete pilot actions, with tangible results (WP4). Based on the lessons learnt in WP3 and WP4, the ports of the Program Area will sign a Protocol for the application of a joint cross-border strategy in this area, thus harmonizing the policies in the medium and long term (WP5), with a benefit for the citizens who live in the vicinity and in the municipalities where commercial calls are made. Also, specific recommendations in this sense will be provided to EUSALP, EUSAIR and EUSDR.
No project so far has ever brought together all the ports of the Programme Area, seeking common solutions to common problems, nor has a joint cross-border strategy ever been built.

VIA KARL LUDWIG VON BRUCK, 3
TRIESTE - Italy - 00390406732692
The LP-Port of Trieste will coordinate and ensure that the project activities, outputs and expected results are achieved. Also, it will analyse the carbon footprint for the ports of Trieste and Monfalcone and develop an action plan for the reduction of CO2. Besides, it will implement pilot actions which will concretely contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions, e.g. the replacement of port lighting systems with LEDs, purchase of an electric vehicle, project design for onshore power supply.

DUBROVNIK PORT AUTHORITY
DPA will replace existing port lightning. Through the project we are planning to exchange 122 lighting fixtures, from witch 87 pieces of LED lamps and 87 pieces of LED reflectors. Total installed power of 122 pieces of LED lamps and reflectors after replacement will be 36,62 kW, what is reduction for 39,05kW (app. 52%) according to currently installed port lightning system. In a yearly period saving of electricity I total will be 160125kWh (from 310263 kWh to 150,138 kWh).
