State Aid: ESA greenlights increase in Norway's short sea shipping scheme




The EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) has today approved a budget increase for a Norwegian aid scheme aimed at promoting a modal shift of freight from road to water.

SSSSESA approved the Norwegian short sea shipping scheme in November 2016 and has today greenlighted a budget increase from 60 million NOK to 82 million NOK for 2017 and 100 million NOK annually for the years 2018 to 2021.

The aid in the five year scheme takes the form of direct grants and the aim of the Norwegian Government is to support more environmentally friendly transportation methods.

For further information, please see ESA's decisions from today and November.
