Demonstrating a 2-stroke and 4-stroke large scale ammonia marine engine

Project description

Demonstrating the benefits of ammonia as a no-carbon shipping fuel

Accelerating shipping decarbonisation is a key pillar of the European Green Deal and of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. ‘Green’ ammonia (NH3) has been gaining interest over the last decade as a fuel for transportation. Unlike conventional hydrocarbons based on fossil fuels, NH3 has no carbon atoms so its combustion generates no CO2 emissions. The ambitious EU-funded Ammonia2-4 project will develop and demonstrate a four-stroke and a two-stroke dual-fuel marine engine running on ammonia as the main fuel. The four-stroke will be a new engine while the two-stroke can be retrofitted to any commercially available two-stroke engine. The two engines have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 % including nitrous oxide emissions.
