  • 5. Finnish Transport Safety Agency LNG Action Plan for shipping 2013 – 2017 24.6.2015 5 The Action Plan is prepared under the leadership of the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications is aimed at promoting the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in shipping on the basis of the following guidelines: • focus resources on providing LNG bunkering in Finland, taking into consideration synergies with domestic industry and heavy vehicles, and the need for an EU-wide LNG infrastructure; • examine the use of financial incentives, such as investment aid and guarantees for ship acquisitions, in the construction of LNG infrastructure and procurement of LNG-powered ships; and • work actively at international level (IMO, EU and HELCOM) to promote the use of LNG as ship fuel, including efforts to establish LNG infrastructure and draft the associated regulations and guidelines, particularly for LNG bunkering. • The Action Plan is quite detailed in activities needed to promote the use of LNG.
