Hyundai Glovis to begin shipping ammonia

Korean logistics organisation Hyundai Glovis will ship LPG and ammonia from 2024 as part of a new ten-year agreement signed with Swiss-based commodity trader Trafigura. Glovis will spend around US$170 million on two new very large gas carriers (VLGCs) designed to carry both LPG and ammonia.

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. This session will address challenges foreseen in adopting Ammonia by a Dry…

Advancing Ammonia as a Marine Fuel

Buoyed by promising new research, Ammonia is emerging as a marine fuel contender among various future fuel candidates that could decarbonize shipping. Jérôme Leprince-Ringuet (Vice President, Marine Fuels, TotalEnergies) will explore ammonia’s potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the maritime industry, and to help turn the tide on climate change. Through his presentation, you will: – Learn why ammonia holds significant potential as a marine fuel candidate, from emission reduction to scalability factors. – Gain insight into the safety, technology maturity and availability challenges facing ammonia’s promise as a marine fuel, and – TotalEnergies’ ongoing efforts and joint…

Ammonia bunkering – simulation of hypothetical release scenarios in Singapore

Ammonia has the potential to be a low carbon fuel for shipping. As an important step for ships to adopt the fuel, the bunkering operation of ammonia shall be established. Ammonia bunkering can be characterized by different infrastructure and operation requirements from that of conventional marine fuel. The study presents potential bunkering concepts and configurations. The dispersion pattern due to accidental ammonia release is investigated by far-field simulation using PHAST software. The impacts of various factors on the dispersion patterns are explored to provide preliminary understandings of future ammonia bunkering safety in Singapore. Slides: please see the attached file.

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…
