Keppel Infrastructure, Greenko to explore ammonia production in India

The pair will explore a new, 250,000-tonnes-per-year renewable ammonia production facility in India, powered by 1.3 GW of solar, wind and pumped hydro generating capacity. The ammonia will be used for “demand for low carbon energy” in India and Singapore, and also as bunker fuel. In related news, Indian energy major Jakson Green has announced it will build a $2.8 billion, 365,000 tonnes per year renewable ammonia production plant in Kota, northern India.

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.

Fortescue & Deutsche Bahn to develop ammonia-powered trains in Germany

Deutsche Bahn and Fortescue Future Industries will collaborate to modify existing locomotive diesel engines to run on hydrogen & ammonia fuel. The pair will utilise Ammonigy’s ammonia cracking technology in their design, with a prototype, bench-top engine currently undergoing testing in Germany. This week FFI also signed an agreement to develop a new energy import terminal in Wilhelmshaven.

New offshore export jetty design receives AiP

SBM Offshore and Imodco’s Ammonia CALM Terminal design has been granted Approval in Principle by DNV. The Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) system was first deployed in 1959, and is an offshore buoy that keeps a vessel safely moored while transferring liquid cargo. The technology could enable the import & export of ammonia into remote locations, or where port infrastructure is not possible.

Ammonia, liquid sustainable energy for future

Hans Vrijenhoef with many years of experience in green ammonia developments will address the topic that ammonia can be used as the carrier of green electricity from Arab world to Europe, Japan , Korea and many other countries, which are lacking lacking natural gas or ammonia production or where ammonia costs are high. Using the green energy, Proton technology enables its clients/ partners to use based on their strategies options for import or export green ammonia, blue ammonia or byproduct ammonia in a safe and environmentally friendly way. After detailed studies and a mutual search for off-takers, Proton offers the…

Accelerating maritime decarbonization via multi-sectoral integration

In addition to its role as a low-carbon maritime fuel, seaborne trade of ammonia will play a key role in global, economy-wide decarbonization. Therefore, marine ports are emerging as likely future hubs for low-carbon ammonia, both as cargo and as a fuel. In many ports, adjacent industries such as refining, chemicals, and land-based freight transport offer additional offtake opportunities for both low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia, and hydrogen offers solutions for decarbonization of port operations. As multi-modal, global-scale trade and demand centers, marine ports have the potential to serve as epicenters and integrators for low-carbon ammonia and hydrogen industrial clusters.
