The port of Málaga supplies LNG to a cruise ship for the first time – MedCruise

The port of Malaga (Courtesy MedCruise) The Port of Malaga is one step closer to its compromise with sustainability through the initiative Green Port, which includes the supply of alternative energies for the ships that will dock in the port facilities and request it.

In this case, last Thursday, 2nd of November, for the first time, the Port Authorities made the operation of the Liquified Natural Gas supply from the Port of Malaga to the cruise ship, which ended up successfully.

The exclusive ship “Silver Nova”, which belongs to the Silversea company, berthed at 8 a.m. in the dock attached to the Dique de Levante, where the already mentioned operation was done during the workday time.

The transport company ESK supplied LNG from the dock to the ship, through 2 tanker trucks which were prepared for it, and they did two shifts each one.


This supply operation of the LNG is not new in the Port of Malaga, as it has been done since 2020 in the Malaga-Melilla line. Currently, the ferry “Rusadir” belonging to Baleària, an ecological ship that makes possible this maritime connection, is recharged regularly in the dock by tanker trucks of the same company, mentioned before.

This service offer in The Port of Malaga increases the competitiveness of the Port facilities, which are still adapting to the demand of the latest and most sustainable cruise shipping companies.
