Balearia, operators of the first LNG ferries will highlight terminal environmental factors in Valencia.

Industry leaders whose operations are based in the Port of Valencia, 2018’s host port, Balearia, will feature on the GreenPort Cruise programme for the first time. Due to take delivery of the first LNG powered ferries this year, Fleet Manager, Guillermo Almar Borràs will join the discussion on ‘Meeting the demand for LNG and other environmental factors in terminals’.

The new ships will operate in the Mediterranean using LNG which will reduce NOx emissions by 85%, CO2 emissions by 30% and eliminates the emission of sulphur and particles. Besides the dual fuel and LNG engines, they will be equipped with photovoltaic panels, LED lighting and trim control, among other features. With these new ships, terminals will need to be modified – a key focus of this session, and part of the work Balearia are currently developing in conjunction with their new vessels.

Balearia are one of many operators, port, terminal operators and non-governmental organisations speaking at GreenPort Cruise in Valencia next month. Ensure you are part of the conversation and book your place today.
