EMMA Project – Strenghtening of the European inland waterway transportation in the Baltic Sea Region

K2 Solutions has developed the concept of the Information and Promotion Center of Inland Waterways in Bydgoszcz. Due to the growing interest in inland navigation in Poland, there was a need for more intensive promotion of this mode of transport. As a result of this trend, a Center will be established, which will deal with the effective promotion of inland waterways and multimodal transport. According to the assumptions, it will operate based on a series of promotional activities, but it will also reach the business sector and offer the possibility of shifting cargo from land to water. The Center’s activity will not be typically theoretical, but it should mainly have a practical dimension and contribute to achieving tangible benefits for inland waterway transport and effectively support its development. In addition, by cooperating with scientific units, it will conduct educational activities to increase the awareness of the benefits of the inland navigation.

EMMA Project – Strenghtening of the European inland waterway transportation in the Baltic Sea Region

K2 Solutions has created 6 point plans for the development of short sea shipping promotion centers within this project. These plans results in recommendations for development of such aspects as organizational structures, obtaining financing, creating a membership network, using IT tools for promotional activities, promoting inland navigation or marketing plans.
The EMMA project aims at tackling the challenges and opportunities focusing on inland- and river-sea shipping. Especially increasing the modal share of inland- and river-sea shipping to, from and between Baltic Sea Region countries, fostering a better integration of inland- and river-sea shipping in the BSR transport chains and the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.

LocPorts Project – Development of South Baltic coastal regions through close Cooperation of local Ports

The aim of this project was to formulate a set of tools to support active development of peripheral coastal region of South Baltic area by focusing on local ports as growth pools. It will be served by two sets of specific activities:
– development of socioeconomic potential of local ports and their surrounding based on existing heritage enriched with modern activities adjusted to requirements of sustainable and environmentally-friendly development,
– transregional cooperation of local ports of South Baltic enabling the benefits of scale and synergy.
This project major goal was to create platform for all SB local ports to exchange their experience in handling all vital issues important for their developments and well-being of the communities they serve. The tangible result would be a catalogue of best practises that would be inspirational and have the quality of transferability to different South Baltic small ports.

BaSIM Project – Baltic Sea Information Motorways

BaSIM project created a sustainable basis for investments in the future aiming at solving existing and coming up bottlenecks in BSR and transnational communication and co-operation. Aim of the Baltic Sea Motorways is to make the transport alternative in the BSR more competitive. Baltic Sea Motorways is a vision carried by most of the Baltic Sea countries, including Russian Fed., in to enhance co-operation and to optimise transport system of the BSR.


Implementation of the Mass NET project, gives the possibilities of using modern devices to monitor the movement of dangerous cargoes carried in containers by existing ICT applications were examined. In addition, a method of monitoring containers with dangerous goods was developed by monitoring temperature changes.
