“If we design the LNG system in the right way, conversion to operation on ammonia is relatively simple. NH3 is very corrosive, so the tanks and fuel transport components need to be able to handle that. Also, it is less space efficient, requiring more tank volume for the same energy output compared with LNG, so vessels need to be designed in a way that allows more tanks to be added easily. Our container feeder vessel is a good example of how this can be achieved – the open-top design allows tanks to be added below the containers, without compromising cargo capacity.” Oskar Levander, SVP Business Concepts, Kongsberg Maritime.
