Energy firm Eni, shipbuilder Fincantieri and Italian consultancy Rina are to develop joint initiatives for decarbonising the maritime industry and helping it achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. 

The companies plan to “conduct a comprehensive analysis and evaluation” of the sustainable fuel alternatives already available before developing complementary solutions. The partners will also analyse the existing energy infrastructure, as well the steps and investments the sector needs to take to develop new logistic structures. 

“The collaboration with Fincantieri and Rina, two major Italian players, is a further step in our journey towards the transition and decarbonisation of maritime transport,” said Giuseppe Ricci, chief operating officer for energy evolution at Eni. “The ability to network among the partners, with their wealth of skills and technological capabilities, can make a significant contribution to finding more effective solutions for decarbonising maritime transport and meeting the needs of shipowners and logistics operators, always leveraging a holistic approach.” 

Carlo Luzzatto, CEO and general manager of Rina said: “Together, we have the opportunity to share knowledge and experience and to contribute to more sustainable solutions that support the shipping supply chain.” 

“We are highly committed to supporting our clients in addressing the industrial challenges of the maritime energy transition, and this initiative is aimed at initially creating a hub of study to harness Italy’s extraordinary expertise in new technologies, novel fuels, and their profound industrial implications for the ship system,” said Pierroberto Folgiero, CEO and managing director of Fincantieri. “Only with a concept of ’operationalising innovation’ can we lead our industry and project our shipbuilding leadership into the future.”
