|Ammonia is going to play a pivotal role in decarbonizing the global maritime industry, but no vessels of any size today are equipped to use the fuel.|
The great opportunity offered by this new green fuel does not come without challenges: manufacturers and engineers must face key technical hurdles and safety issues in the design of ammonia engines and fuel cells; port operators and fuel suppliers must provide bunkering infrastructure; energy companies will need to invest in solar, wind and other renewable-energy capacities to produce enough green ammonia.
The goal of the digital workshop is to set up a discussion about both the opportunities and issues, involving subjects at the forefront of this innovative path:
SHIPOWNERS, SHIPBUILDERS, SUPPLIERS, REGISTERS, PORTS, ASSOCIATIONS AND POLICY MAKERS.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
SHIPFC project will install the world’s first high-power ammonia fuel cell on a vessel, with the ultimate goal of demonstrating the feasibility of ammonia fuel cells for ocean going vessels and long sea voyages: effectively opening up a completely new option for zero-emission shipping and creating the starting point to build up the market for zero-carbon fuels.
