Edison is looking to bolster its position in Italy’s small-scale LNG market by building a storage and bunkering facility on the country’s northeastern coast.

After requesting government approval in 2015 to develop a 10 thousand cubic metre (Mcm) LNG storage site at Oristano, Sardinia, Edison is now looking to build a 20 Mcm facility in the harbour of Ravenna in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. The company plans to bring the facility online by 2020.

The project is the first planned on Italy’s Adriatic coast and will be owned by a yet-to-be-created joint venture between Edison and PIR Group, a company offering logistical solutions for the transport and storage of liquid and dry products.
