  • The dataset was created in order to update the information regarding underwater pipelines in the Baltic Sea Region for the HELCOM Assessments. Data was collected by the HELCOM Secretariat during 2015. The data was made available by HELCOM Contracting Parties in response to data request. The data was received from Denmark, Germany, Finland and Poland. The report data represents constructions on respective territorial waters, authorized facilities and activities from 2015. The activity was declared as not relevant in Lithuanian area. From Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia and Sweden no data was reported. Attribute specification and units: NAME COUNTRY CAPACITY (MW) STATUS (Operational, Under Construction, Application Submitted, Planned, Unknown) SOURCE

  • The dataset was created in order to update the information regarding underwater cables in the Baltic Sea Region for the HELCOM Assessments. Data was collected by the HELCOM Secretariat during 2015 and 2016. The dataset contains information on submarine cables in the Baltic Sea. The dataset is based on available public sources on cables and due to variety of data sources (national and international), should be taken as general data based on best available public data with variable resolution over the different region in the Baltic. For Danish areas, the data represents constructions on Danish territorial waters, authorized facilities and activities from 2015. Depending on area, more accurate spatial data might exist, but data is unavailable for public use. National data submissions from Latvia and Russia were not available. For 2018 version of dataset, cables that have only approximate location were removed from the dataset, as the spatial accuracy of these objects is not sufficient for the scale of the index.

  • This is a dataset of designated places of refuge reported by HELCOM member countries by year 2011.

  • This is a dataset of places of refuge areas reported by HELCOM member countries by year 2011. For Finland, Sweden, Germany and Poland coastline can be used as a place of refuge if decided. These places of refuge areas on the coastline were formed by creating 10 km buffer from the coastline.

  • The objective of the BALTHAZAR project has been to assess the potential sources of hazardous substances from landfills/dumping sites, to characterise their environmental risks and to develop measures to reduce the risks of run-off of hazardous substances from waste site to the Baltic Sea.

  • Dataset contains the vessels in the Baltic Sea area with towing capacity in an emergency situation (over 25 tons of bollard pull). The locations of the ships are approximate, derived from the homeport of the vessel. Dataset contains the vessels in the Baltic Sea area with towing capacity in an emergency situation (over 25 tons of bollard pull). The locations of the ships are approximate, derived from the homeport of the vessel. See also the use restrictions -section. ATTRIBUTES: - X : longitude of the location (at homeport, in WGS 84) - Y : latitude of the location (at homeport, in WGS 84) - BOLLARDP : towing capacity of the vessel (tons of bollardpull) - READINES : readiness (hours) - ROUGHSEA : rough sea capabilities - SOURCE : possible source of the information - NOTICE : additional information For more information about HELCOM's response activities, see: http://www.helcom.fi/groups/response/en_GB/main.

  • This dataset contains the commercial Ports of Baltic Sea. The dataset was created in 2016 to be used in HELCOM Assessments. Attribute specification and units port: Name of the port Country: Name of the country LOCodes: the United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations

  • Total (monthly, and 5 year average) discharge from hydropower dams (m3/s). Data includes the water that passes the turbines as well as the water not passing the turbines. The data was made available by HELCOM Contracting Parties in response to data request. The data was received from Estonia, Finland and Sweden. The activity was declared as not relevant in Denmark, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Data contains only those hydropower dams that are situated closest to the Baltic coast (less than 40 km), are the first ones from the coast in the river network and have a direct connection to the Baltic Sea trough river. Swedish data is a combination of actual measurements and modelling. Modelled data have been calculated with s-hype2012_version_3_0_0. These data are also presented online at http://vattenwebb.smhi.se/regulations/. Please note that data from 2015 is provisional and may be subject to revisions. Attribute specification and units: X_Long: X (East) coordinate point Y_Lat: Y (North) coordinate point Country: Country (EE=Estonia, FI=Finland, SE=Sweden) ID: Name or ID number of the hydropower dam AVG_year: A calculated yearly average discharge (m3/s) (2011-2015) jan_2011 – dec_2015 : Monthly discharge (m3/s)

  • Dataset contains the response vessels in the Baltic Sea area capable of providing international assistance in an oil spill situation. The locations of the ships are approximate, derived from the homeport of the vessel. See also the use restrictions -section. The dataset was updated in 9/2016 by the HELCOM Secretariat. ATTRIBUTES: -VESSEL: Name of response vessel - LOCATION: announced homeport - REC_SYST: oil recovery system used - REC_RATE: rate of oil recovery (m3/hour) - STORAGE: oil storage capacity of the ship (m3) - TOWING: towing capability of the ship - FIREFIGHT: fire fighting capability of the ship - LIGHTERING: lightering capability of the ship - BOOMTYPE: type of booms on board - BOOMLENG: length of the booms (m) - NOTICE: additional information - IMAGE: reference to a possible image file of the vessel
