H2Carrier and Greenland-based wind project developer Anori have agreed to develop Greenland’s first commercial wind farm, which will power the offshore production of ammonia via H2Carrier’s P2XFloater™ vessels. In an interview with Greenland newspaper Sermatsiaq, Anori Director Palle Christiansen explains that the 1.5 GW, 200 turbine wind farm will be located on Greenland’s southwest coast near the village of Atammik, and result in the offshore production of 900,000 tonnes of ammonia per year (Danish language). Assessing wind potential at locations around Atammik for the remainder of 2023 is the next step for the project, as well as what infrastructure is required.
At present, less than 1% of the global ammonia consumption globally is produced from renewable energy. We need to turn this around to come closer to 100% as soon as possible in order to reach the targets of the Paris agreement.Anori Chairman Nicolai Fossar Fabritius in H2Carrier’s official press release, 3 Jan 2023
Greenland has attractive wind resources and ample access to clean water. Clients are based internationally and Greenland will benefit from new employment and export revenues. This is a win/win project – from the climate to the treasury!Anori CEO Palle Christiansen in H2Carrier’s official press release, 3 Jan 2023
Larsen & Toubro signed as engineering partner for P2XFloater™ vessel construction
India-based Larsen & Toubro will design & construct the “topside” sections of the P2XFloater™ vessels in India, including the electrolysis, nitrogen generation and ammonia production modules. H2Carrier indicates that the hulls will be built somewhere in Asia, with the two to be integrated together in India or elsewhere. L&T’s long-standing experience in the oil & gas industry, modular chemical production equipment and offshore applications will be leveraged to bring H2Carrier’s ammonia FPSO design to life.
Our P2XFloater™ design represents a solution which addresses a number of concerns for renewable energy projects: costs, time, use of land and environmental footprint, lengthy planning and regulation processes etc. By teaming up with L&T, we have taken a significant step towards creating an optimal supply chain for delivering P2XFloaters™ on a large scale to projects anywhere in the world.H2Carrier CEO Mårten Lunde in his organisation’s official press release, 13 Jan 2023
At the end of last year, H2Carrier CTO Sebastian Kihle took us through the design, operation and potential working locations for the P2XFloater™ vessel in an episode of Maritime Ammonia Insights. Alongside Philippe Lavagna from SBM and Puneet Sharma from CyaNH3, Sebastian explored how lessons from the oil & gas sector and brand new technologies can help unlock the offshore ammonia production industry – watch a replay of the discussion here:
