ClassNK issues AiP for ammonia-fuelled bulker

ClassNK has issued an approval in principle (AiP) for the design of an ammonia-fuelled Panamax bulk carrier developed by Planning and Design Centre for Greener Ships (GSC). Ammonia is expected to be used as decarbonised fuel for ships since it does not emit CO2 when burned, however, taking adequate safety measures are impartial due to...

Ammonia could play a key role in climate-neutral shipping, find Danish researchers

A new report by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU)  has found that ammonia is a key green fuel in shipping’s decarbonisation by 2050. As part of the MarE-Fuel project, researchers from DTU together with Anker Invest, Maersk Line, Copenhagen Economics, OMT, and DFDS, and with funding from the Danish Maritime Fund and Lauritzen Fonden,...

VARD orders BWTS for eight marine robotic vessels

VARD has contracted Norwegian Greentech to deliver ballast water treatment systems (BWTS) to eight marine robotic vessels the shipbuilding group is constructing for an undisclosed shipowner. VARD has designed a multi-purpose platform that allows for onshore remote control, light crewed or uncrewed operations, and the introduction of alternative fuels such as green ammonia. The vessels...

Anglo-Eastern secures AiP for ammonia-fuelled newcastlemax

An innovative ammonia-fuelled newcastlemax bulker design from Anglo-Eastern Technical Services (AETS) has been granted approval in principle (AIP) by ABS. The dual-fuel vessel design sacrifices no cargo space by using deck-mounted IMO Type C tanks under the accommodation block on each side of the vessel. AETS has designed the system for retrofit to existing vessels...
