On August 16, NYK and TB Global Technologies Ltd. (TBG), Japan’s top manufacturer of cargo handling equipment for crude oil, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and other liquids, signed a basic agreement to jointly develop Japan’s first bunkering boom for ammonia, a device used to supply ammonia fuel between ships, reported nyk.
Ammonia is expected to contribute to the decarbonization of ships because it does not emit CO2 when burned.
TBG will receive from NYK data related to the development of its ammonia bunkering vessel (ABV), which received Approval in Principle (AiP) from ClassNK in September 2022*. NYK will also share with TBG the knowledge gained from Japan’s first LNG bunkering vessel, Kaguya, which is operated by Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation, an NYK affiliate.
A bunkering boom is a device consisting of rigid pipes and hoses that connect a bunkering vessel to the other vessel to supply fuel. It is highly durable because it is made of rigid pipe, and its swivel joints allow it to change direction freely, making it easy to operate.
