Ammonia electric marine power for GHG emission reduction

Project Details

Description

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.
