World’s First Green Ammonia Terminal Receives Large Governmental Grant
The project partners, spanning the entire value chain for ammonia as a marine fuel, will develop and demonstrate an ammonia fuel bunkering network for ships, enabling cost efficient and safe distribution, storage, transfer and utilization of ammonia as a carbon free fuel.
With this public funding the project is on track to be the first in the World to pilot ammonia bunkering operations – taking the first step to enable a large-scale shift to carbon free fuel for ships.
Green Ammonia fuel pioneers
Azane Fuel Solutions are developing flexible ammonia fuel bunkering terminals to remove the existing barriers for implementing ammonia fuel. The new solutions will be capable of receiving fuel from ships, trucks and barges, in refrigerated or pressurised state and be optimised for ammonia-fuelled ships. The solutions include both shore-based solution and floating solution.
Azane Fuel Solutions will offer its products and services globally and see the Northern European market as a likely early adopter of ammonia fuel for the maritime industry. There will be a substantial market potential on a global scale as the larger international deep-sea shipping market adopts the new fuel.
