Azane Fuel Solutions and project partners have been awarded €8,600,000 from the Norwegian government to build its world-first green ammonia bunker terminal. The project partners span the entire value chain for ammonia as a maritime fuel, and include ECONNECT Energy, Amon Maritime, Yara and Viridis Bulk Carriers.
We are removing the famous chicken-and-egg dilemma for new fuels. Ammonia already has a global bulk terminal network. Now we will start building the bunkering network.André Risholm, CEO at Amon Maritime and Chairman at Azane Fuel Solutions in the official press release, 2 September 2021

As previously reported at Ammonia Energy, Azane launched in July this year with the aim of developing new floating and shore-based ammonia ship bunkering infrastructure technology. This fills a critical gap in the current ammonia fuel chain. Learn more in this interview with Azane’s founders.
Challenges of ammonia as a marine fuel
And it’s not just Azane working to fill in the gaps: other organisations are meeting the challenges of using ammonia as a marine fuel head on. This week DFDS‘ infographics about future marine fuels caught our eye. As well as green hydrogen, green methanol and biofuels, they profile the difficulties and opportunities presented by the use of ammonia as a shipping fuel. Learn more here.
