SunRui Marine Environment Engineering Co., Ltd on Wednesday (13 July) said it received Approval in Principle (AiP) certificates from classification societies Lloyd’s Register (LR) and China Classification Society (CCS) for its self-developed marine ammonia fuel supply system (AFSS).
At present, ammonia is widely considered one of the fuels with wide application prospects in the green and low-carbon transformation of the shipping industry.
“Under this context, SunRui and LR signed a strategic cooperation agreement on technical cooperation in the application of marine clean energy such as ammonia fuel,” said SunRui, a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC).
Through unremitting efforts, SunRui developed AFSS with completely independent intellectual property rights.
The system is mainly composed of a liquid ammonia bunkering unit, ammonia storage unit, heat exchange and supply unit, ammonia vapour processing unit, security and monitoring system, control system and other units. The system is suitable to be used with the MAN-ES two-stroke ammonia engine ME-LGIA and WinGD two-stroke ammonia engine.
Due to the toxicity and corrosion of ammonia fuel, LR, CCS and SunRui conducted a comprehensive risk assessment of AFSS during the certification period.
During the risk assessment, LR, CCS and SunRui identified potential safety hazards in each step. Meanwhile, corresponding protective measures will be discussed and risks will be rated to ensure the safety and reliability of AFSS design.
“The successful development of AFSS and the principle certification of LR and CCS indicates that SunRui has reached a new level in the field of ship clean energy application,” said SunRui.
“Under the opportunity of global low-carbon environmental protection, SunRui will continue to provide customers with the most efficient and economical marine environmental solutions and provide support and contribution to the green development of the global shipping industry.”
