Concepts to reduce environmental impact and attain optimal transport performance by inland navigation (CREATING)

Objective

CREATING will boost the overall performance of inland navigation transport by multidisciplinary RTD activities and by integrating previous project results in innovative vessel concepts focused on logistics, emission reduction, safety and efficiency: New I ntermodal Concepts for innovative transport concepts, aiming at niche markets. RTD activities include innovative new vessel concepts with optimised logistic performance, with implementation of results from the supporting RTD on emissions, safety and effici ency. The new vessel concepts will be assessed on their logistic, economic, environmental and safety performance, including comparison to other transport modes. Emissions RTD concentrates on fuel economy by reduction of hull resistance, innovative propulsi on systems and energy management, including future application of fuel cells in inland navigation. Other topics include reduction of wastewater, dust and gasses. Safety RTD concentrates on safety analysis of external risk and causes of accidents, as well a s on safety measures aboard, including both innovative constructions and navigational and operational aspects. Integration and dissemination of results The results and potential improvements will be disseminated widely, not only by the great number of nat ional and international associations involved, but also by national authorities who expressed their interest in the CREATING approach. Recommendations will be made with regard to regulations, in order to facilitate the introduction of important innovations in European inland navigation.
