Liquefied Natural Gas is a source of energy that is shaping the future of the maritime transport industry. A research carried out by SEA\LNG shows that by 2020 fleets that are able to carry LNG on board will double up in order to meet the growing interest in LNG and to serve all the upcoming projects.
One of the reasons why the demand for LNG has been growing is its environment friendly nature.
Barbaro Group anticipated and showed the way to LNG in the 1990s when, through the subsidiary Fluvio Padana, transported gas along the Po River in Italy, loading in Rovigo and discharging in the coastal depot in Cremona. Within the frames of the project, PB Tankers managed eight Liquefied Petroleum Gas tankers ranging from 2.500 to 3.600 DWT.
PB Tankers is developing different projects involving the management of LNG.
In 2015 PB Tankers had already developed a project that led to the definition of the building specification for a small scale LNG carrier (7.000 m3) tailored for the bunkering trade on the Italian coast and supplying a green field LNG shore storage facility on the East Coast of Sardinia.
The LNG carrier was projected to be fitted with Dual Fuel main engines able to burn BOG and Type “C” cargo containment system.
Recently, the Barbaro Group has amplified a portfolio of its LNG projects developing a specification for SSLNG having capacity 30.000 m3.
Barbaro Group has deep roots in the industry of marine transportation.
One of the most important assets of the Group is the expertise that brings to the development of long-term relationship with the main players in the industry. The Group offers an extensive range of business solutions to its partners.
PB Tankers is always looking for highly qualified partners and experts with an extensive LNG expertise (technical, crewing, safety and vetting) ready to join its team.
