Costa Cruises choose Bio LNG Trucks for onboard supplies in Northern Europe

 Wednesday, May 17, 2023 


In order to start using bio – LNG – powered trucks to transport supplies needed by its cruise ships, Costa Cruises has signed an agreement with LC3 Trasporti.

The collaboration between the two Italian companies is set to officially begin on May 19th, when the Costa Firenze ship will call for the first time in the port of Kiel, Germany, from where she will depart weekly until mid – September to offer seven–day cruises to the Norwegian fjords.
As the decision goes the supply of goods needed by the ship, such as some types of food, beverages, and technical supplies, will be transported from the Costa Cruises warehouse in Genoa to Kiel using LC3 Transport trucks powered by bio – LNG, the liquified biomethane obtained by refining waste from the livestock industry.

It is stated that the use of this alternative fuel for the road transport of goods will cut CO2 emissions by almost 90 percent, and particulate emissions by almost 100 percent as compared to a conventional Euro V1 diesel vehicle.

As stated by Marco Dioda, Vice President of Procurement & Supply Chain at Costa Cruises exclaimed that sustainability is a key asset in Costa Cruises’ business model.

They have introduced major innovations in our industry, such as the first LNG – powered ships, and we remain committed to research and development of further technologies, with the ambition of achieving a net–zero fleet by 2050.

It also sets an example of how the path of energy transition can provide new opportunities in their country as well, bringing together two Italian companies that share the same vision and innovative spirit.
