Avatar Logistics and KTH releases ice study for inland navigation

Together with the EMMA project partner Avatar Logistics, the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) has performed a feasibility study for inland barges operating on inland waterways. The objective of the study is how an inland motor barge based on European standards can be modified for navigation in Swedish Lake Mälaren under ice conditions. This first study of ice navigation on inland waterways is an important step to establish inland navigation in Sweden and the Baltic Sea Region

The ice study was officially handed over to Avatar Logistics at the annual Joint Conference of the Interreg BSR Program Project EMMA and the Chamber Union Elbe-Oder that took place in the Nordic Embassies in Berlin February 21st 2018.
