Description

Today a "Green" vision of the Port becomes fundamental and LNG is more environmental friendly than any other fuel for its reduced emissions (nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide and particulate matter). In the Mediterranean Sea, the environmental legislation has not yet imposed strict limits like it happened in the ECA / SECA zones. However, starting from 2020 or in any case by 2025, new regulations are planned to come into force. The distance of the LNG suppliers from the terminals and the LNG demand itself strongly affect the whole supply chain. One key point to consider for competitive planning and development of the LNG supply chain is that LNG carriers can supply connected harbors thus reducing the number of vessels involved and optimizing the quantity of LNG carried. The choice of using LNG as a fuel is growing because it reduces pollution and operative costs. The technology is ready to be used, but the port infrastructures have to face new challenges in the days to come. This study shows the possible scenarios (LNG supply system and pollution reduction) if using LNG in four different types of port.
