Maersk unveils its plans for Europe’s largest production facility of green ammonia
Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) has unveiled plans to set up Europe's largest green ammonia production facility, with AP Moller - Maersk as one of its collaborators.
AP Moller - According to the company's release, Maersk is on a quest to find the marine fuels of the future with green ammonia being one of three preferred fuel types.
Located in Esbjerg on the Danish West Coast, the Power-to-X facility will convert power from wind turbines to green ammonia. The green ammonia produced at the facility can be used as green fertilizer by the agricultural sector and as a truly sustainable green fuel by the shipping industry.
AP Moller - Maersk signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Danish companies Arla, Danish Crown, DLG and DFDS, promising to work towards the establishment of the facility as well as promoting the removal of green ammonia from the facility until it is ready for market delivery.
According to the CIP, the project has the ability to minimize CO2 emissions by about 1.5 million tons - the equivalent of permanently removing 730,000 vehicles from the roads. In 2026, the plant is expected to begin producing green ammonia.
Within greenfield clean energy infrastructure projects, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) is the world's largest dedicated fund manager.
