Improved small port

Smart Marina improved 32 small ports

The main achievement of the project was the improvement of 32 small ports and a Blue Flag certification of 17 upgraded harbours with a clear environmental signature.
Project improved conditions and service level in 32 small ports on the coast of the Baltic Sea in Estonia, Sweden, Finland and Åland. Ports invested in construction or renovation of service buildings including saunas, toilets, kitchens, etc., in improving quality of drinking water, wastewater and garbage treatment, green technology (solar panels), electrical pedestals, floating piers and pontoons. Safety training for harbour personnel was an important activity as well.
Project developed a Smart Marina app that can be used by boaters for finding location, get information about the destination and safety sailing guidance into the guestharbours. App can be downloaded from App-store or GooglePlay.

Sharing best practices between harbour owners and operators has been an additional value from the project. Joint marketing of the region, it’s ports and sailing opportunities is another valuable output of the cooperation.
