Livorno cruise terminal
In the near future, the Livorno port will offer LNG bunkering, building a dedicated LNG cruise ship terminal just 20 km (12 ml) away from the cruise port. The port autority company announced in July 2016 that they are considering the option to use the LNG plant to refuel LNG-powered cruise ships. This way Livorno will join the few ports offering with LNG (liquefied natural gas) availability. The close-to-port LNG supply service will allow cruise vessels to bunker directly, i.e. without using the services of LNG barges or trucks to provide them with fuel.
In 2016, Port of Livorno had scheduled a total of 416 ship calls handling around 800,000 cruise passengers. The expect number of passengers in 2017 is around 900,000 . The growth is mainly due to larger-sized cruise vessels.
Currently, the cruise port has 3 berths, meaning it can handle 3 large-sized ships at a time. Extra berthing is available at other piers, which offer priority docking for passenger shipping vessels. With those, the port can handle 6 vessels at a time.
