Topic description

The objective is to develop infrastructure projects in maritime ports on the Core Network of the TEN-T.


Works on core maritime ports, with the possibility to include studies, related to:

  • port access aiming at providing safe maritime access in the form of breakwaters, access channels, fairways, locks and navigational aids;
  • basic port infrastructure, with a priority on: 
    • development of zero or low-emission multimodal solutions, or;
    • development of ports´ capacities and facilities in relation with offshore wind farms, or;
    • improving connectivity of remote, insular or outermost regions (as defined in Article 349 TFEU) or of Member States with no land border with another Member State;
  • shore-side electricity supply;
  • port reception facilities for oil and other waste (including residues from exhaust gas cleaning systems) to meet environmental requirements;
  • ensuring year-round navigability by means of capital dredging and ice-breaking facilities;
  • providing or improving road/rail access and connections within maritime ports.

Support will not be given to infrastructure dedicated for cruise ships, except as regards shore-side electricity supply.

Hinterland connections to the maritime ports are covered by the respective transport mode priorities but may be part of a single Action (for instance an Action improving the rail access both within and outside the port area).

The basic infrastructure for development of zero or low-emission multimodal solutions could include basic infrastructure for improving the interconnection between the maritime transport and inland waterways.

In accordance with Article 9(2)(a)(i) of the CEF Regulation, Actions addressing the Core Network may include related elements on the Comprehensive Network, when necessary to optimize the investment. These elements may form up to 10% of the total eligible costs of the Action and shall be presented as a separate work package.

Facilities and infrastructure supported under CEF must be accessible for use by all operators on a non-discriminatory basis.

The foreseen duration of the action should be 4-5 years maximum.
