Ammonia as a future marine fuel – bunkering safety and potential issues

Bunkering is an indispensable operation to supply fuel to ships. Currently in marine industry, ammonia has been a bulk commodity frequently loaded/unloaded from terminal to ship or ship to terminals. The operation is similar to bunkering, the difference being that ammonia is transferred to a dedicated storage tank instead of fuel tank. The future adoption of green ammonia as a marine fuel will need to be developed taking reference of the existing industry practice, of which the bunkering operation is carried out for heavy fuel oil, diesel oil, marine gas oil, lube oil and LNG. There is also a need…

Alternative low carbon energy for maritime application

Singapore is the largest trans-shipment seaports in the world that has connectivity to 600 ports in over 120 countries. The country has a thriving maritime cluster that comprises over 5,000 maritime-related establishments contributing about 7% of the nation’s gross domestic product. With the growth in world trade and expanding future port activities, the Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emission from the local ports is expected to increase in tandem to support the wide range of essential port services. This is a challenge for Singapore and the maritime industry as global climate change agreements call for the reduction in GHG emission. This presentation…

Bunker Ammonia: momentum toward a “sus­tainable and future-proof” maritime fuel

The maritime industry is beginning to show significant interest in using ammonia as a "bunker fuel," a sustainable alternative to the highly polluting heavy fuel oil (HFO) currently used in ships across the world. In recent months, a firm of naval architects and a new maritime think tank have both been evaluating ammonia as a fuel. This includes a road map for future research, and collaborations for a demonstration project that will allow them to design and build a freight ship "Powered by NH3."
