Abstract

The scientific analysis presented in this paper aims at studying some maritime technical solutions for the electric energy generation and delivery to ships moored in port by means of LNG fueled generators installed onboard a floating unit. Two different scenarios regarding the LNG supply chain are supposed and some options for producing cleaner electric energy are then investigated. The reference area considered in this study is the old port of Genoa where the traffic of both passenger and cargo ships takes place. The paper presents an analysis concerning the main technical features of the considered solutions for an actual port calls scenario. The results regard dimensions and weights of the proposed floating units and the most significant characteristics of the generation equipment, as far as average load factor, fuel consumption and cost are concerned.
