Valletta, Malta (PortSEurope) June 1, 2018 – The 52nd MedCruise General Assembly took place between May 23-26, 2018, in Malta. MedCruise is the Association of cruise ports in the Mediterranean and its adjoining seas. Valeria Mangiarotti, head of marketing at Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare Di Sardegna (AdSP – Sardinian Sea Port Authority), took the opportunity to present a report on the use and role LNG
as a fuel for cruise ships. AdSP President Massimo Deiana said that the event was a valuable occasion for networking with the ports of the Mediterranean and talking with cruise companies on environmental, operational and tourism-related issues, whereas for the AdSP, it was an opportunity to raise a debate on LNG. He added that Italy was investing in LNG refuelling facilities to try and become a regional leader in the field. Attending the event was cruise company Costa Crociere, which in 2019 will launch the new Costa Smeralda which is fuelled by LNG. In April 2018, the fourth edition of the Isola Dell’Energia: ‘Sardinia, LNG leader in the Mediterranean’ took place in Cagliari to take stock of the process of methanisation of Sardinia with the LNG (liquefied natural gas) coastal deposits system and to examine the role of Sardinia as a leader in small-scale LNG for the central Mediterranean. LNG is an essential element of the ‘energy transition’, intended to gradually replace oil derivatives in maritime, heavy land transport, in industries and in isolated networks with a drastic reduction in emissions of sulphur, fine dust, nitrogen and CO2. The use of LNG in economic and civil activities is an opportunity for technological development and efficient industrial relaunch, contributing in a clean and ecological way to the national energy needs.
