Wärtsilä Norway AS and Simon Møkster Shipping have entered into a collaboration agreement for a project which involves a feasibility study to utilise ammonia as main fuel in dual fuel engines operated by Møkster. These vessels today operates mainly on LNG.
Ammonia is regarded as one of the most interesting marine fuels for the future. By use of a blend of ammonia and LNG, the emission of CO2 from the combustion process will be considerably reduced.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate that conversion of dual fuel powered vessels is feasible and that operation of ammonia-LNG vessels can be done in a safe and efficient way.
Møkster is excited to join forces with Wärtsilä for this project which may continue for several years to come.
