RINA to help plot cruise’s sustainability map

CLIA is charging the Italian multinational with the cruise industry's decarbonisation and fuel infrastructure.

MULTINATION energy company RINA is set to map out the cruise industry’s sustainable future as part of a Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)-commissioned study.

The Global Investment Plan Study will chart the future of cruise’s decarbonisation and fuel infrastructure development worldwide, aimed at steering the sector toward sustainability.

The research will map real-time energy needs, infrastructure, and regulations, with foresight on scenarios extending to 2050.

It aims to provide foresight on the current status and future developments in fuel infrastructure and deployment over the next five-to-10 years.

A significant emphasis will be placed on the impact of itineraries and operations of cruise ships, considering various energy carriers both in navigation and while in port.

It will also study international and local greenhouse gas regulatory frameworks and their impact on ship design and operations; estimate the volume of energy carriers required to meet decarbonisation requirements; approximate the location and size of infrastructure to support cruise itineraries and technologies, and more.

The study will cover all areas of the world, outside Europe, and will focus on a holistic view of the cruise industry’s infrastructure and regulatory needs worldwide.

It represents a major step in the cruise industry’s commitment to align with the International Maritime Organization’s 2030 and 2050 environmental goals.
