ClassNK issues AiP for ammonia-ready LNG-fuelled bulk carrier

ClassNK has issued an Approval in Principle (AiP) for the design of an ammonia-ready LNG-fuelled Panamax bulk carrier developed by the Planning and Design Centre for Greener Ships (GSC). Ammonia is expected to be used as ship fuel for decarbonisation since it does not emit CO2 when burned. Adequate safety measures are important due to...
