Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has signed a preliminary collaboration agreement with Cassa depositi e prestiti (CDP) and Snam related to medium-term strategic projects for the innovation and development of port facilities in Italy.

Under the deal, the parties would identify, define and implement the projects, as well as develop sustainable technologies applied to maritime transport, in line with the provisions of the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan Proposal (PNIEC).

In particular, the agreement focuses on four areas, including:

• Ports and coastal areas – projects for building infrastructure for the supply, transformation and use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and alternative energy sources in maritime transport within port facilities or coastal areas;

• New technologies and innovative energies – research, development and implementation of maritime transport systems based on new technologies (turbines for LNG modules, containment and management of liquid and gaseous methane systems), innovative energy sources (LNG, hydrogen, fuel cells);

• Engineering – sharing operating models and best practice between the respective engineering and construction departments;

• Energy efficiency – initiatives to increase consumption efficiency, with a particular focus on the naval and industrial sectors.

As part of the agreement, Fincantieri and Snam will share their technical skills by launching dedicated workshops. CDP will support these initiatives from an economic and financial point of view.
