Barbaro Group pioneers the transition towards LNG
According to research conducted by BP Statistical Review of World Energy, in 2020, the global volume of LNG trade reached 488 billion cubic meters, while the fleets capable of transporting LNG to meet the growing consumption reached 642 boats. The results confirm a constant growth trend for an alternative energy source with the capability of revolutionizing maritime transport.
In the 1990s, well in advance of the sector’s development, the Barbaro Group understood the environmental and economic potential of liquefied natural gas as a source of clean energy.
Through the subsidiary Fluvio Padana, the Group has developed gas transport along the Po river by managing eight gas tankers with deadweight from 2,500 to 3,600 T.
Recently the Barbaro Group has developed some innovative projects for the transport of LNG.
In 2015, the Group devised technical specifications for constructing a Small Scale LNG (SSLNG): about 7,000 cubic meters of capacity, both for transport from the Italian coasts to a storage plant on the eastern shores of Sardinia and to supply LNG to other units (bunkering).
The ship, equipped with the main engine and “dual fuel” auxiliary engines, was able to use both liquid fuel (MGO) and the gas that vaporizes in type “C” containment tanks (Boil Off Gas, BOG ).
