Vi må ikke glemme at Yara er mer enn gjødsel

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has secured approval in principle from the compatriot classification society Korean Register (KR) for the design of an ammonia-fuel ready very large gas carrier (VLGC).

The VLGC will be capable of using ammonia as a fuel as well as carrying it as bulk cargo.

The design, jointly developed by SHI and KR, maintains the actual yield stress of the ammonia tank steel below KR’s Rule requirements and is able to maintain a temperature close to the boiling point.

“We are committed to supporting the responsible use of ammonia in a sustainable energy economy: ammonia is an important green energy source and is expected to account for a significant proportion of future ship fuel demand,” Kyu-jin Yeon, Head of KR’s Plan Approval Center said, announcing the design approval at Gastech 2022 in Milan.

“However, whilst the shipping industry has significant experience of carrying ammonia as a bulk cargo, using it as a fuel brings new challenges and fuel systems must be designed, manufactured, operated and maintained in a way which ensures the safety of the ship crews, port staff and fuel suppliers. KR will continue to co-operate with SHI to develop further green technologies and become a leader in this field.”

Det ligger an til en konkurranse mellom hydrogen og ammoniakk på større skip, men når det gjelder større havgående skip er nok ammoniakk det mest sannsynlige.
