DNV AiP granted for design of green ammonia-fuelled tanker

14 Jun 2022

LMG Marin AS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore-based shipyard Sembcorp Marine Ltd, Wärtsilä Voyage and Grieg Edge have been awarded an Approval in Principle (AiP) for the design of a tanker that runs on green ammonia by the classification society DNV, according to Sembcorp on Monday (13 June). 

LMG Marin AS is a naval architecture and ship design firm that has a portfolio of vessel designs, including zero-emission vessels.

The world’s first green ammonia-fuelled 120m-long tanker, the MS Green Ammonia will run on an ammonia engine with a cargo capacity of 7,500m³ of ammonia and will be able to load up to 1,000m³ per hour.

The vessel will be part of the larger Berlevåg project in the north of Norway, where a group of Norwegian companies plans to produce green ammonia using power from the Raggovidda wind farm. 

The MS Green Ammonia will transport and distribute green ammonia fuel between mainland Norway and the North Pole from 2024.

Manifold Times reported in December 2021 that LMG Marin secured a contract to design MS Green Ammonia for Grieg Edge, the dedicated innovation unit of the Grieg Maritime Group.
