EU to Support the Upgrade of Swedish Maritime Infrastructure

Press Release
Thursday, February 28, 2013

The European Union will co-finance with over €2.5 million from the TEN-T Program a project to improve the maritime infrastructure in Lake Mälaren in Sweden to increase the role of maritime transport in the area and foster intermodality and relieve congestion on road and rail.


The project, which was selected for funding under the 2011 TEN-T Annual Call, will support the preparation of the necessary studies and documentation which are necessary to obtain a building permit from the relevant Swedish authorities.


Once completed, it will pave the way for the construction phase, which will look at improving the maritime infrastructure in order to improve efficiency, safety of navigation and environmental performance by increasing the depth and width of the fairways and the main canal and improving the already existing lock. On completion, Lake Mälaren will be accessible by larger vessels, increasing the time and cost efficiency of maritime transportation.


The project will be managed by the Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency and is set to be completed by December 2014.
