Ammonia as a shipping fuel – Safety concept of the NoGAPS vessel design
Watch webinar on demand here, and download the slides here.
Nordic Green Ammonia Powered Ships (NoGAPS) project is working to pave the way for ammonia-powered vessels. The first phase of NoGAPS ran from 2020 to 2021 and developed a proof of concept on how the barriers to the adoption of ammonia as a zero-emission maritime fuel can be overcome. The second phase of the NoGAPS project is ongoing and, in this phase, the project will produce a detailed ship design for an ammonia-powered ammonia carrier – the MS NoGAPS – which will lay the foundation for a shipyard tender and the construction of the vessel.
A substantial amount of work is happening to understand the safe use of ammonia as a shipping fuel. This webinar introduces MS NoGAPS and present new insights on ammonia safety gained from the MS NoGAPS vessel design, share initial findings from the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping/Lloyd’s Register quantitative risk assessment, before opening up for a panel discussion with NoGAPS partners from across the value chain on their perspectives on ammonia safety based on the project.
