Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) on Thursday (9 September) said it is developing a concept design for an “Ammonia-fuel Ready LNG-Fueled Vessel” (ARLFV) with MTI Co., Ltd. (MTI), and Elomatic Oy, a Finnish maritime consulting and engineering firm.
Currently, NYK and MTI (the NYK Group) are promoting the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a bunker fuel to achieve NYK’s mid- and long-term environmental targets.
From the above aspect, the LNG-fuelled vessel is set as a “Bridge Solution” for future marine fuels.
As such, the NYK Group and Elomatic has now launched the development of a concept design for the ARLFV which can be converted to a ship using ammonia as a marine fuel once its supply is ready.
The ARLFV is set as a “Next Bridge Solution” to cover the transition of the marine fuel from LNG to ammonia.
The development of the concept design will be conducted by the NYK Group and Elomatic between September 2021 and January 2022 to identify and explore challenges to the actual design and construction of ARLFV.
The results of development will be released in a video with accompanying 3D models in January 2022 at the time of the project’s completion.
