AMMONIA - THE NEXT LOW CARBON MARINE FUEL?

MAN Energy Solutions has taken to social media to put forward proposals to use ammonia as a ship fuel. Rene Laursen, promotion manager for the ME-LGI engine family, announced the move on Facebook.

"Having launched a concept for LPG fueling through our ME-LGIP system, we at MAN are now ambitious to make a dedicated ammonia engine. Ammonia can be burnt in an engine without producing any carbon, and it lines up perfectly with our decarbonisation strategy. We are looking forward towards getting a flag state approval for ammonia and have our very first ammonia engine ready in a couple of years," wrote Laursen.
He summed up: "I think we are the first one who sees the possibility of ammonia as a fuel."
