This Action is part of the fourth and final deployment phase of the GAINN_IT, a Global Project promoted by the Italian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MIT) for the realisation of the Italian strategic Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) network.
The Action encompasses the implementation of two new LNG-multi-modal facilities for the transport sector in the maritime Core ports of Venice and Livorno.
The Action will contribute to the decarbonisation of the transport sector in Italy and the Balkan region, by the removal of functional barriers to the supply of LNG to the market and in particular to maritime transport.
This will be done via the development of adequate infrastructure in the two ports that are expected to become the gateways of the Italian LNG network. Livorno LNG multi-modal facility is expected to have a storage capacity of about 9,000m3, while Venice about 32,000m3. Both multi-modal facilities are planned to be duly equipped for the reception of LNG from bunkering ships.
