The overall target of the Aegir project is to develop, test and evaluate an environmentally friendly technological solution to power large marine vessels by using green ammonia as pri-mary fuel. The project has four main objectives: 1. Design the concept for an electric ammonia fueled ship with an efficiency over 50%. 2. Demonstrate a reduction of greenhouse gas emis-sions by 90% compared to current state-of-the-art liquefied natural gas fueled marine engines through a well-to-propeller analysis. 3. Experimentally validate three key enabling technologies for the integrated concept. 4. Provide a concept study to identify potential scale up issues.
