Leaders of maritime industry explore ammonia as marine fuel in Singapore
Ammonia has long been regarded as one of the most promising alternative marine fuels for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the shipping industry, as it emits zero CO2.
A.P. Moller - Maersk A/S, Fleet Management Limited, Keppel Offshore & Marine, Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, Sumitomo Corporation, and Yara International ASA are pleased to announce that the parties have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly conduct a feasibility study with the intention of being one of the leaders in establishing a comprehensive and successful suv system.
Ammonia has long been regarded as one of the most promising alternative marine fuels for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the shipping industry, in line with the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) plan to limit CO2 emissions by 2050. Green ammonia, in particular, has a lot of potential because it is made entirely from renewable energy, water, and air, with no CO2 emissions.
The study's aim is to cover the entire ammonia bunkering supply chain from beginning to end, including the development of a cost-effective green1 ammonia supply chain, vessel design, and related supply chain infrastructure.
Singapore's related government agencies and experts will cooperate on the standardization of secure operation and regulations. As a starting point, the analysis will look at ammonia supply, as well as possible synergies with Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). Vessels or barges originally designed for LPG can also accommodate brown3, blue2, and green1 ammonia due to the similar requirements for mild refrigerated storage.
