Prototypes of LNG infrastructure at the Port of Civitavecchia


For the Port of Civitavecchia the activities cover the basic engineering and the prototype of the LNG ship refuelling system.

The basic and detailed analysis focused on the possibility to provide LNG to LNG driven ships in the port of Civitavecchia through the LNG ship refuelling system represented by the Tyrrenian-Ligurian LNG bunkering ship/barge in the medium-long period and by LNG tank trucks and ISO container in the start-up phase.

Thanks to the GAINN4MOS contribution, a main milestone has been achieved: on the 11th of July 2017, the procedure for supply LNG to Aida Perla has been achieved via the authorisation released by the local stakeholders committee.

The LNG ships refuelling system at the Port of Civitavecchia will be prototyped and piloted in real life operations.

The exploitation of this activity will contribute to the dissemination, adoption and harmonization of the LNG ship-bunkering best practices and procedures to the other GAINN4MOS and Mediterranean ports.

With the purpose of sharing the main studies results and feedbacks and to foster the LNG uptake in the Mediterranean trough the dissemination of the lessons learned from the GAINN4MOS experience, an executive summary report and dissemination material will be available in this section of the website soon.
