KR issues AiP for KSOE and HHI developed vessel ammonia fuel supply system

07 Sep 2021

Classification society Korean Register (KR) has reportedly issued an Approval in Principle (AiP) for an ammonia fuel supply system developed by Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) Group.

The system, which allows commercial vessels to use ammonia as a bunker fuel, is able to remove nitrogen oxides in exhaust gas by using ammonia boil-off gas, said KSOE and HHI on Friday (3 September).

It also equipped with a double leak prevention gas treatment system for safety purposes.

In May, several Korean firms signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to form a consortium to explore the use of ammonia in marine transportation and bunkering.

The companies are HMM, LOTTE Fine Chemical, Lotte Global Logistics, POSCO, Korean Register (KR), and KSOE. More specifically, KSOE plans to develop an ammonia-powered ship, which will be certified by Korean Register.
