Amogy to deploy marine ammonia-to-power systems in Norway
Article

Amogy will deploy its ammonia-to-power systems onboard electrical Platform Supply Vessels (ePSVs) for Norway-based Green Ships Invest. As well as the new ePSV design, the pair will explore the use of Amogy’s technology onboard two additional vessel types. Amogy has also entered into a partnership with W-Industries for the fabrication, deployment and commissioning of its ammonia-to-power systems.

Target top regional fuel ports, spend $2 trillion to enable ammonia marine fuel by 2050
Article

New Oxford research finds that over 60% of global shipping fuel demands could be met by renewable ammonia in 2050, which can be achieved by targeting renewable ammonia fuel supplies at the “top 10 regional ports”. The team also predicts that conventional maritime fuel production could be replaced by a more “regionalised industry”, producing up to 750 million tons of renewable ammonia per year in tropical and sub-tropical countries.

The <i>Fortescue Green Pioneer</i> sails in Singapore harbor on ammonia fuel
Article

Fortescue Future Industries, Maritime and Port Authority Singapore and a host of supporting organisations announced a world-first marine trial in Singapore harbor last week. The vessel sailed on ammonia and diesel dual-fuel in harbor waters, after being loaded with liquid ammonia fuel at Vopak’s Banyan Terminal on Jurong Island. Two years of vessel development and months of safety and training exercises led up to the trial. MPA and Fortescue report that post-combustion NOx levels from the vessel met local air quality standards for Singapore, with further emissions treatment measures to be applied.

Enaex, NYK to explore ammonia marine fuel supply in Chile
Article

Enaex and NYK Bulk & Project Carriers will explore the feasibility of supplying renewable ammonia fuel in Mejillones, northern Chile. NYK Bulk and Chilean national copper company Codelco have already signed an MoU to build a fleet of 10-15 ammonia-fueled vessels to transport copper concentrate from Mejillones to key Asian markets.

Euronav, CMB.TECH unveil future plans for an ammonia-powered fleet
Article

International crude oil giant Euronav and CMB.TECH will merge to form a new clean shipping entity. The future fleet will feature nearly one hundred ammonia-fueled ships, including Ultramaxes, large-scale container vessels, long-range carriers and chemical tankers. Further details have also emerged about CMB.TECH’s ammonia fuel production project in Namibia, which is targeting a yearly production capacity of 185,000 tonnes of ammonia fuel by 2028.

Order book for alternative-fueled vessels grows in 2023
Article

Clarksons Research and DNV have provided their analysis of global ship orders for 2023. Last year saw the first orders for ammonia-fueled vessels, with container ships & car carriers dominating the order book for alternative fuel propulsion ships. But UMAS & the Global Maritime Forum warn that the current order book trajectory may only be a fifth of what is needed to achieve the IMO’s 2030 target for alternative fuel uptake.
