Genoa-based Cosulich and Novella groups are working together with the aim to provide LNG to the ferries and cruise ships calling at the port of Genoa. Italy’s oil major Eni has been also invited to take part to the project, while Autogas Group will be the partner in charge for the inland distribution of the gas.

MSC Cruises, Costa Cruises and some other ferry companies (Grandi Navi Veloci) in the recent past asked the local port authority to speed up any potential project aimed at giving shipping companies the possibility to receive LNG from bunker barges.

Cosulich and Novella, both active on the market as physical suppliers of bunker respectively in Singapore and in the ports of Genoa and Savona, look at the regasification terminal off the coast of Leghorn managed by OLT Offshore Toscana and the one onshore in Panigaglia controlled by Snam as key points for receiving LNG.
