Amogy Partners With Southern Devall


  • Amogy partners with Southern Devall for a technology deployment project.
  • This partnership will enable Amogy’s commercial debut of its ammonia-to-power technology in the global maritime market.
  • Its proprietary ammonia-to-power system converts ammonia into hydrogen for use in fuel cells or long-distance hydrogen transportation.

This first commercial maritime deployment of Amogy’s technology will hasten the company’s market entry, reported byH2 Bulletin.

Strategic Partnership

Amogy Inc. has announced a strategic partnership and technology deployment project with Southern Devall, formerly Southern Towing Company & Devall Towing.

Southern Devall will demonstrate the operational benefits and scalability of Amogy’s proprietary ammonia-to-power system by integrating it into a tank barge.

Southern Devall specializes in bulk liquid chemical and fertilizer transportation along the Mississippi River and Gulf Intracoastal Waterway System. 

Commercial debut

This collaboration with Southern Devall will enable the commercial debut of Amogy’s ammonia-to-power technology in the global maritime market by successfully integrating Amogy’s technology in a tank barge for the first time.

Amogy’s proprietary ammonia-to-power system converts ammonia into hydrogen for use in fuel cells or as a more energy-dense method of long-distance hydrogen transportation. 

Large-scale Production

The system, which has already been demonstrated in a farming tractor and an aerial drone, is now being scaled for larger applications, such as ships and ammonia bunkering barges, to help the maritime industry decarbonize.

This collaboration will give Amogy access to extensive ammonia infrastructure as well as the Southern Devall team’s expertise in ammonia and maritime operations.

Barge retrofit

Amogy and Southern Devall have begun work on their first technology deployment, a barge retrofit that will be completed by the end of 2023.

Instead of a diesel genset, an Amogy powerpack will generate the power required to reliquefy ammonia as it heats up during a voyage.

The Amogy system will keep the ammonia tank pressure low, allowing Southern Devall to deliver ammonia to customers upon arrival and increase fleet utilization and profitability.

Following the barge integration and demonstration, Amogy and Southern Devall intend to retrofit additional barges and tugboats.

Resulting in an ammonia-powered fleet that includes cargo transport vessels as well as bunkering barges for efficient, emission-free refueling of ammonia-powered ships.

Environmental benefits

“In collaboration with their team, we’ll have a first-mover advantage in this space through expanded access to ammonia infrastructure and industry knowledge, setting us on track to demonstrate our platform’s operational capabilities in large maritime vessels,” said Seonghoon Woo, CEO of Amogy.

“Adopting their solution at scale in our fleet has both environmental and economic benefits through increased delivery volume,” said Sam Lewis, Vice President of Southern Devall.
