Japanese engineering powerhouse IHI has inked a significant agreement with Indian renewables developer ACME, paving the way for the annual offtake of 400,000 tonnes of green ammonia starting in 2028.
In the pursuit of sustainable energy carriers and a transition away from fossil fuels, hydrogen, ammonia, and synthetic gases have emerged as promising alternatives, drawing increasing political interest. However, the scalability of present solutions across various fronts is crucial to replace fossil sources and meet the sustainability targets set for 2030.
H2SITE, a Spanish hydrogen transport solutions provider, has made a significant breakthrough in maritime decarbonization by successfully commissioning the world’s first on-board ammonia cracking system. This system generates high-purity hydrogen coupled with a PEM fuel cell, providing clean energy for the ship’s auxiliary consumptions.
Horisont Energi has inked a Letter of Intent (LoI) with VNG Handel & Vertrieb GmbH, a subsidiary of German energy giant VNG AG. This collaboration revolves around the offtake of clean ammonia from the Barents Blue project, poised to be Europe’s largest clean ammonia plant, situated in Hammerfest, Northern Norway.
Uniper and First Ammonia are collaborating to bring green ammonia into the global market. The announcement was made at the US-German Hydrogen Conference in Berlin, and it signals a significant step in the battle against greenhouse gas emissions.
Hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe, has long been touted as a promising renewable energy source for the vehicles of the future. Dr. XiaoYu Wu, a mechanical and mechatronics engineering professor at the University of Waterloo, firmly believes in hydrogen’s potential, but he also recognizes the significant challenges associated with its storage and transportation.
As the world pivots towards decarbonization and energy security, hydrogen is taking center stage as a clean energy carrier. What’s more, the logistics of transporting hydrogen efficiently and safely over long distances have become a critical concern. Enter ammonia, a versatile and cost-effective solution that’s revolutionizing the global hydrogen transportation landscape.
In a move that solidifies Fortescue Future Industries’ (FFI) commitment to becoming a global player in green hydrogen, the company has unveiled plans for a groundbreaking green hydrogen and ammonia facility in Prince George, Canada.
JERA Americas, Uniper, and ConocoPhillips have announced a non-binding Heads of Agreement for the sale of ammonia to Uniper.
American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has granted Seaspan Corporation and the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping (MMMCZCS), in collaboration with Foreship, an Approval in Principle (AiP) for the design of a 15,000 TEU ammonia-powered container vessel.
