Ammonia as a Fuel of the Future: A Ship Operator’s perspective

Ammonia as a Marine fuel is a new introduction to the Bunker industry. In order to be better prepared for setting up the required infrastructure etc for an efficient supply chain, it is important to understand what are the downstream challenges that suppliers can expect. A key aspect of this is to hear it from potential end-consumers and gain their perspective. Maersk is committed to reducing its Co2 emissions by almost 60% (over Y2008 baseline) by 2030 and is exploring Ammonia as a possible pathway to get there.

A strategic pathway to a sustainable shipping industry powered by Australian renewable energy

Australia is lucky. We have bountiful natural resources, buried in the ground, streaming from the sun and coursing through the air. Along with our geographic position on the apex of the vast Asian Pacific trade route we are in the perfect situation to initiate a new industry.   Oceania are connecting together these key aspects of Australia’s DNA. Our ambition is to leverage the abundant energy sources in the north-west of Australia to supply green ammonia, then utilise the best-in-class bunker vessel to deliver sustainable shipping fuel to an industry that’s responsible for 3% of global GHG emissions. To achieve…
