The General Authority of Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZONE) on Thursday (21 September) said its delegation, headed by Waleid Gamal El-Dien, met with Shell officials, Roberto Maria Batumli, Regional lead of the Hydrogen industry EU, and Rene Smeets, Marine LNG business development Manager during a roadshow tour to the Netherlands.

The meeting discussed green hydrogen projects and SCZONE’s plans regarding this sector, as SCZONE has signed nine framework agreements with major global consortia for green fuel production and bunkering services.

This comes after the bunkering operation for the first vessel powered by green methanol at East Port Said Port.

Both sides discussed the requirements of green hydrogen projects in Sokhna integrated zone; the desalination plants, the green corridor, and the tank farms for liquid bulk, to serve green hydrogen production, transportation, and storage.

“Within the meeting, Shell officials showcased the activity of bunkering services with liquefied natural gas (LNG), and the possibility of implementing this activity in Egypt through SCZONE-affiliated ports, due to the large density of transshipment of SCZONE ports, as well as the availability of the elements for implementing the bunkering activity, building on the successes SCZONE achieved after restoring bunkering services with fossil and green fuel in the ports of East and West Port Said and Sokhna,” it said.

DNV white paper: Demand for ammonia as bunker fuel in 2030 is estimated to be 2.3 MTPA

Demand for ammonia as a maritime fuel is modelled to grow from 2.3 MTPA in 2030 to 62 MTPA in 2040, and 245 MTPA in 2050, according to DNV study.

DNV white paper: Demand for ammonia as bunker fuel in 2030 is estimated to be 2.3 MTPA

The demand for ammonia as a maritime fuel in 2030 is estimated to be 2.3 MTPA, increasing rapidly to 62 MTPA in 2040 and 245 MTPA in 2050, according to a new whitepaper by classification society DNV published recently. 

The report added that the maritime sector will use only green and blue ammonia.

The whitepaper, titled Availability of green and blue ammonia in 2030 to 2050 found that that per Q2 2023, the global green and blue ammonia production industry has announced 161 clean ammonia projects with a total production capacity of 244 MTPA.

“Of the announced 244 MTPA, little over a sixth (43 MTPA) is estimated to be available in the balanced scenario. From this, about 14 MTPA is projected to be blue. Green ammonia dedicated to shipping may be in the range of 4–7 MTPA, and 21–31 MTPA will potentially be available across fertilizers, energy, and fuel markets,” the study explained. 

Ammonia for shipping fuel is targeted by 30 projects across 10 countries with a combined output of 20.8 MTPA. Almost all these projects plan for green ammonia. The leading countries are Australia (49% share) and Egypt (33 % share). 

In addition, 93 other projects have announced end-use combinations of fuel and either fertilizer, energy, or both, with combined production amounting to 174 MTPA. If all the announced projects are successful according to their planned onstream date, the possible supply of ammonia for shipping fuel would be in the range 21–195 MTPA, with 21–151 MTPA available in 2030.

DNV said the whitepaper shed light on critical questions regarding the future of ammonia and examined the supply and demand of green and blue ammonia in its latest white paper based on a review of announced ammonia-plant projects and longer-term demand predictions.

In response to the anticipated delivery of ammonia engines, fuel producers are announcing production plants for ammonia that is clean from well to wake.

“So, how will ammonia supply and demand develop towards 2030 and beyond? How will different industries compete for ammonia? And which ammonia types will prevail?,” DNV explained some of the questions they helped to answer.

Walvis Bay green hydrogen production plant to include ammonia bunkering

Cleanergy Solutions Namibia, a joint venture between CMB.TECH and the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group, has proudly hosted the Cleanergy Green Hydrogen progress showcase at the plant’s site in Walvis Bay, Namibia, under the guidance of His Majesty, the King of the Belgians and H.E. Dr Nangolo Mbumba, President of the Republic of Namibia. 

The milestone marked an important step in positioning Namibia as a frontrunner in the global green hydrogen economy, according to CMB.TECH on Saturday (2 May).

The event was aimed to showcase the progress of the Cleanergy Green Hydrogen site. Expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2024, the hydrogen refuelling station marked an important first step in the commitment to becoming a leader in renewable energy solutions in Namibia.

A highlight of the site visit was the ceremonial first filling of a dual-fuel truck at the hydrogen refuelling station, officiated by His Majesty the King of the Belgians and H.E. Dr Nangolo Mbumba, President of the Republic of Namibia. 

The site includes a hydrogen refuelling station and a production plant. The facility uses only solar energy for the on-site production of green hydrogen and will be used for hydrogen-powered trucks, port equipment, railway applications and small ships. 

The hydrogen production plant is the first phase of a five-year plan with several projects at different locations, including ammonia bunkering, pipelines and large-scale hydrogen and ammonia production.

In addition, Cleanergy, together with CMB.TECH, Port of Antwerp Bruges and Namport, will launch the first hydrogen-powered ship in Africa. Building on the successful collaboration between CMB.TECH and Port of Antwerp Bruges, as demonstrated by the launch of the Hydrotug and the world's first multimodal hydrogen refuelling station in the port of Antwerp, the focus now shifts to the development of a Multifunctional Port Utility Vessel (MPHUV) powered by dual-fuel hydrogen engines. The MPHUV's versatile design will enable the integration of different equipment needed for a range of port operations, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions during operations.

Given the ability of ports to act as hubs for hydrogen technology implementation and efforts to reduce carbon emissions, the Port of Walvis Bay and Namport emerge as an ideal partner to operate Africa's first hydrogen vessel. The port's involvement will provide invaluable insights into the vessel's specifications during development and refine the concept based on operational experience and feedback from users once it is commissioned.

A key element of the Cleanergy Green Hydrogen site is knowledge exchange, exemplified by the establishment of the Hydrogen Academy on-site. The Cleanergy Solutions team, suppliers, customers, as well as Namibian and European universities and institutes, will jointly upskill Namibians on hydrogen and its diverse economic potentials. The aim is to transform the Hydrogen Academy into a premier hub of hydrogen expertise in Namibia.

Bergen Engines to provide generating sets for world’s largest hydrogen-powered ferries

Bergen Engines, a producer of medium-speed engines and generating sets, on Wednesday (1 May) said it has been selected to provide four C25:33L8A generating sets to support the world’s largest hydrogen ferries, operating on Norway’s longest ferry connection from Bodø to Lofoten.

The generating sets will be fuelled by low carbon Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) and will serve as reliable support power to the hydrogen fuel cells onboard, which act as the vessel’s main propulsion power. These new ferries will be powered with a hybrid mix of 85% hydrogen fuel cells and 15% biofuel from Bergen’s C25:33 engines.

The hydrogen ferries, commissioned by Torghatten Nord, have been designed by Norwegian Ship Design Company and will be constructed by Myklebust Verft. 

Eirik Olsen, Operations Director at Torghatten Nord, said: “Norway has the will, expertise, and experience needed to realise our zero-emission ambitions, and develop world-leading solutions for maritime operations.”

“Our Norwegian partners are at the forefront of design and development in energy-efficient ships and technology, and this project will greatly contribute to competence development in maritime, electrical, automation, and engineering fields.”

Through this project, Torghatten Nord will become the first major purchaser of hydrogen in Norway, contributing significantly to the further advancement of the Norwegian hydrogen industry.
