Project description

World-first offshore vessel to run on ammonia-powered fuel cell

Recent research suggests that ammonia holds great promise as a marine fuel that can help the shipping sector meet the IMO target of halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The EU-funded ShipFC project will install the world’s first ammonia-powered fuel cell on a vessel. The project will see an offshore vessel retrofitted with a large, 2-megawatt, ammonia fuel cell, which allows it to sail solely on the clean fuel for up to 3 000 hours annually. As such, the project will demonstrate that long-range zero-emission voyages with high power on larger ships is possible.
