As noted in Riviera Maritime Media’s recent article their “webinar on ammonia as a marine fuel (sponsored by naval architect and marine engineering company NETSCo) gave timely and practical insights on the viability of ammonia in shipping, noting its production, supply and handling is already well-established.
Presentations around the subject of ammonia as a marine fuel came from C-Job lead naval architect Niels de Vries, Yara International vice president of ammonia energy and shipping fuel Rob Stevens, NETSCo vice president Jan Flores, and NCE Maritime CleanTech project manager/project co-ordinator ShipFC, Tore Boge.
Mr. Flores noted that NETSCo has experience of ammonia logistics in designing ammonia barges and through installing fuel cells. It was the hydrogen fuel cell installation on a ship that made NETSCo consider ammonia, he said. “There were challenges with hydrogen storage capacity. We looked to ammonia to solve the storage issue.”
