New concept design for ammonia-fuel ready LNG-fuelled ship
Concept of the ARLFV as a Next Bridge Solution

Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), MTI, and Elomatic, have launched the development of a concept design for an Ammonia-fuel Ready LNG-Fuelled Vessel (ARLFV), which can be converted to a ship using ammonia as a marine fuel once its supply is ready. ARLFV is set as a “Next Bridge Solution” to cover the transition of the marine fuel from LNG to ammonia.

The development of a concept design is being conducted by the NYK Group and Elomatic between September 2021 and January 2022 to identify and explore challenges to the actual design and construction of ARLFV.

The results of development will be released in a video with accompanying 3D models in January 2022 at the time of the project’s completion.
