Engine builder MAN Energy Solutions has partnered up with Japanese shipbuilder Imabari Shipbuilding, ClassNK classification society, Mitsui E&S Machinery, and energy trading firm of Itochu Corporation, Itochu Enex, on the development of a vessel powered by ammonia.
The cooperation builds on the work MAN Energy Solutions has already launched on the development of an ammonia-powered engine.
The project is in line with the shipping industry’s efforts to decarbonize shipping and build zero-emission vessels.
Hydrogen and ammonia have been identified as the likely zero-emission fuels of the future, with the latter having greater potential to power large trans-ocean going ships.
