74

  • Ocean Infinity, a marine robotics company based in Houston, received the final of eight new high-tech Armada vessels designed to be ammonia-ready.
  • The vessel NB 941 was delivered by Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam on January 24.
  • The vessels are equipped to use green ammonia as fuel, featuring fuel cell and battery technology, aiming for an ultra-low carbon footprint.
  • This order will increase Ocean Infinity’s remote vessel fleet to 23 vessels, reportedly the largest in the world.
  • The 85-meter vessels are expected to be delivered from Vard Vung Tau in 2025.

Ocean Infinity Receives Final Armada Vessel

Ocean Infinity, a marine robotics firm headquartered in Houston, has received the final installment of eight cutting-edge Armada vessels, prepared for ammonia use.

The vessel NB 941 was delivered by Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam on January 24.

Vard received a contract to design and build these highly advanced, 78-meter vessels in November 2020. The units are initially planned only to use a skeleton crew onboard, and in due course are planned to work with no personnel offshore.

Pioneering Green Ammonia Technology

In December 2022, Ocean Infinity took delivery of the first two robotic vessels that form part of the Armada fleet.

The vessels are prepared for green ammonia as a fuel with fuel cell and battery technology and are designed for an ultra-low carbon footprint.

The fleet is scheduled to serve as multi-role vessels, supporting Ocean Infinity’s operations worldwide from its control centers.

Ocean Infinity Expands Fleet With Green Ammonia-Powered Vessels

In February 2022, Ocean Infinity contracted Vard for the design and construction of a new series of six multi-purpose offshore vessels, all of which will be operated from shore and will eventually utilize green ammonia as fuel.

This order of the 85-meter, optionally crewed robotic vessels will take Ocean Infinity’s remote vessel fleet to 23 vessels – said to be the largest in the world.

The vessels are scheduled for delivery from Vard Vung Tau in 2025.

  1. It was great seeing how much work you put into it. Even though the design is nice and the writing is stylish, you seem to be having trouble with it. I think you should really try sending the next article. I’ll definitely be back for more of the same if you protect this hike.
