Amogy, MSB Complete Study On Onboard Hydrogen Production

  • Amogy and MSB jointly explore potential opportunities to collaborate with their respective technologies and commercial applications across the ammonia-powered shipping and shipbuilding value chain.
  • This initiative aims to support the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) new target of achieving net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the maritime industry by around 2050.

US-based ammonia-to-power solutions provider Amogy and Japan’s Mitsubishi Shipbuilding have completed a feasibility study on concept designs for onboard hydrogen production and utilisation, reads an official release.

Feasibility study on concept designs for onboard hydrogen production

The collaboration involves Amogy’s ammonia-cracking technology and Mitsubishi Ammonia Supply and Safety System (MAmmoSS). The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding to conduct feasibility studies on an ammonia fuel supply system. This initiative aims to support the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) new target of achieving net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the maritime industry by around 2050.

The feasibility studies focused on two collaborative concept designs: a powertrain combining ammonia cracking with a hydrogen fuel cell for ships and a hydrogen supply facility to provide hydrogen as pilot fuel for an ammonia fuel engine.

Ammonia, being carbon-free, has garnered attention as a fuel with the potential to significantly reduce GHG emissions in the maritime industry. It is anticipated to be a future source of stable, clean energy, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding said.

To unlock ammonia’s potential, Amogy has developed an ammonia-to-electrical power system that “cracks” liquid ammonia into its base elements of hydrogen and nitrogen. The system then channels the hydrogen into a fuel cell to generate high-performance power, according to the Japanese company.

  1. Very interesting to read newer information on chasing low/No carbon energy, every day.
    Wonder what could be the root energy source for producing ammonia.
    Ultimately will it be shore based nuclear plant using U-235 ??
