Scene-setting for ammonia in the marine industry: propulsion systems, FPSOs & jettyless tech

As the maritime industry gears towards the use of more sustainable fuels, Denmark-based cargo pump supplier Svanehoj reports increased orders for ammonia-capable equipment to be used on LPG tankers. Navantia and H2SITE will combine their expertise in shipbuilding and ammonia cracking to create hydrogen-based propulsion systems. Thyssenkrupp Uhde’s ammonia technology will be used in SwitcH2’s floating ammonia production vessels to harness offshore wind energy. And Iverson eFuels will use ECOnnects’ jettyless gas transfer technology at its 200,000 tonnes per year ammonia production facility in Norway.

Flexible ammonia synthesis: shifting the narrative around hydrogen storage

Flexible ammonia production technology is currently scaling up to meet the challenges of fluctuating electricity feedstock. The ability to ramp down plants to 5 - 10% of their nominal load will minimize the requirement for hydrogen storage buffers and reduce the overall cost of renewable ammonia production. The first demonstration-sized flexible ammonia plants are due to begin operations later this year.

bp: renewable hydrogen & ammonia in Valencia

bp will lead development of a renewable hydrogen cluster at its existing refinery in Castellón, Spain, with up to 2 GW of on-site electrolysers to be installed by 2030. Renewable hydrogen produced at project HyVal will be used as a feedstock for the refinery, and to decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors in the Valencia region, including ammonia production.

Cepsa: renewable ammonia in Spain

Spanish energy & chemicals giant Cepsa has announced two new, significant ammonia partnerships this week. Cepsa will supply renewable ammonia imports to ACE Terminal in Rotterdam from 2027, realizing the vision for a green maritime corridor between the Netherlands and the Mediterranean. And, together with Fertiberia, Cepsa will develop a 1 GW renewable hydrogen plant near the La Rábida energy park. The plant will produce hydrogen feedstock for Fertiberia’s Palos de la Frontera ammonia & fertiliser manufacturing complex, and Cepsa’s own industrial needs in the area.

Cepsa and Port of Rotterdam to create a green maritime corridor from the Mediterranean

Cepsa and the Port of Rotterdam will establish a green maritime corridor between southern and northern Europe. Renewable hydrogen will be produced near the Bay of Algeciras (Spain) and exported to Rotterdam, with ammonia and methanol both listed as potential vectors. The pair expect the corridor to be operational by 2027. This week the Port of Rotterdam also announced that a potential green maritime corridor to the Port of Gothenburg, Sweden is under development.
