Danish Consortium to develop ammonia-fuelled marine engine

Innovation Fund Denmark, the Danish investment entity, has announced the establishment of a consortium to develop a two-stroke, ammonia-fuelled engine for maritime shipping. The consortium aims to specify and demonstrate an entire, marine-propulsion system that will pave the way for the first commercial order for an ammonia-fuelled vessel. MAN Energy Solutions will lead the consortium...

Joint R&D starts for practical application of ammonia-fuelled tugboat

NYK, IHI Power Systems, and ClassNK have signed a joint research and development agreement to put the world’s first ammonia-fueled tugboat into practical use. With the entry into force of the Paris Agreement in 2016, global momentum for decarbonisation has increased, and reducing GHG emissions has become an issue in the shipping sector. Since carbon...

We can make shipping zero emission and it doesn’t have to be costly, says Klaveness

Norwegian shipowner Torvald Klaveness has been looking at ways to achieve zero emission shipping through its Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC) concept study. Over the summer, the firm took on four interns from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to further explore how emissions could be lowered without reducing carriers’ transportation capacity or trading flexibility. They...

Trio start R&D for use of ammonia as marine fuel

NYK Line, Japan Marine United Corporation, and Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) have signed a joint R&D agreement for the commercialisation of an ammonia-fuelled ammonia gas carrier (AFAGC). The vessel would use ammonia as the main fuel, in addition to an ammonia floating storage and regasification barge (A-FSRB). As carbon dioxide (CO2) is not emitted when...
