In the future, the port of Livorno Italy, could play into LNG bunkering, with a LNG terminal just 12 miles from the port.
Livorno is of course a very popular Italian port and the gateway for excursions to Pisa and Florence.
“We are looking at using the LNG plant to re-fuel new LNG ships,” said Giovanni Spadoni, technical and commercial director for the Port.
“We are working on authorization procedures and feel we will be on the first ports with (gas) availability.”
The close-proximity LNG supply may mean cruise lines could bunker directly without barges or trucks.
