Fifteen floating bunker terminals pre-ordered
Yara has pre-ordered fifteen of Azane Fuel Solutions’ ammonia bunker terminal units. The floating or land-based units are currently under-development, with funding from the Norwegian government granted in September last year to build the first pilot terminal. Once delivered to Yara, a carbon-free ammonia fuel bunker network will be established in Scandinavia.
These bunkering terminals are key pieces of the puzzle to ensure reliable and safe ammonia supply as zero-emission fuel. Yara is excited to be a part of the project and to own and operate the first operational ammonia fuel terminals in the world.President of Yara Clean Ammonia Magnus Krogh Ankarstrand in his organisation’s press release, 1 Apr 2022
