2000 commercial vessels operate in the Baltic Sea at any given minute throughout the year. Tens of millions of tons of chemicals are transported and the amount of passengers going through the Baltic ports is close to 100 million per year.
100 – 200 incidents are reported involving commercial traffic but the number of near miss situations is many times higher. All this, combined with the increasing amount of traffic in the Baltic Sea, the traffic intersecting at several nodes, difficult waters, and the harsh winter conditions in the northern Baltic Sea increase both the probability of a largescale maritime incident and the difficulty of conducting search and rescue operations.
