This study analyses the current energy options to reduce emissions throughout the MoS (Motorway of the Seas) between the ports of Vigo and Nantes-Saint Nazaire, assesing the options and impacts in terms of cost, fuel consumption and emissions.

The optimal combination of options to reduce emissions in the MoS between Vigo and Nantes-Saint Nazaire is able to reduce emissions substantially: the most cost-effective energy measures would prevent sulphur and particle emissions, and also cut Nox emissions by almost a 90%, and CO2 emissions by almost a 30%.
