The Green Platform project Ammonia Fuel Bunkering Network aims at realizing an ammonia fuel value chain for the first ammonia-fuelled ships. MaritimeNH3 is the competence-building part of the project. Here, SINTEF develops new knowledge to facilitate the implementation of ammonia as a safe and cost-efficient zero-carbon maritime fuel. Our research is focused on:
- Simulations and experimental work to advance the development of NH3 propulsion, including both piston engines and high temperature fuel cells.
- Techno-economic analysis and green-house-gas assessment of a Norwegian NH3 value chain for maritime transport.
- Models and simulations of NH3 spills to improve risk mitigation for NH3 bunkering installations in a Nordic climate.
