World Maritime University (SWEDEN)
The pressing problem of increasing air pollution in port cities, as well the introduction of strict environmental regulations -with the introduction of International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Sulphur directive and relevant changes in the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), Annex VI standing out- made it crucial for the maritime and transport industries to resort into alternative fuel sources. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is one of the most promising solutions for this challenge. The "Go LNG" initiative is focused on the development of demand and accessibility of LNG in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR). Activities associated with this strategic-in-nature project aim to promote the implementation of EU’s Clean Fuel Strategy and boost LNG usage through the whole transport chain.

Among other important tasks, the establishment of a BSR LNG Competence Center is included. The World Maritime University (WMU), along with its capacity building focus, is playing a pivot role towards the creation of this training center that will be the epicenter of the analysis in hand. Relevant experience from other similar in nature projects, such as the “On The Motorways of the Sea Network (OTMW-N)” project, provide a solid background. LNG training modules were designed and tested by delivery both in classroom and distance learning modalities such as video-streaming and online tests.

A potential framework to bring together interested in LNG educational and training institutes with a maritime focus in the wider region, under the notion to materialise this important center will be analysed. Themes and learning objectives are included, along with a brief explanation of the possible target audience.
