    The overall aim of the Ammonia2-4 project is to demonstrate at full scale two types of dual fuel marine engines running on ammonia as main fuel: (i) a four-stroke and (ii) a two-stroke engine. The proposed four-stroke innovation is a newbuild 10MW engine to be demonstrated in lab conditions closely mimicking real-life operations in ambient conditions. The proposed two-stroke innovation is a medium-pressure ammonia fuel injection platform that can be retrofitted onto any two-stroke marine engine available in the market today. It will be demonstrated in the project at two stages: a lab demonstration followed by retrofitting onto a container vessel of the alpha customer MSC. Both engine innovations are expected to result in at least 80% less GHG emissions (including nitrous oxide emissions), NOx emissions below IMO Tier III regulations and a negligible ammonia slip below 10ppm. By demonstrating both engine types at full scale the project partners are aiming for commercial exploitation of the project results towards more than 90% of the maritime intercontinental transport in terms of gross tonnage, including retrofits and newbuilds to enter the fleet within the next ten years. It is expected that both Ammonia2-4 innovations will lead to an annual reduction of CO2 emitted by deep sea vessels calling at EU ports by 2.3 million tons, and reduce the emissions of harmful pollutants such as SOx by 15 tons annually. The project will go beyond purely technological developments and investigate a number of non-technical aspects crucial for a successful uptake of ammonia as marine fuel: health & safety, ammonia supply infrastructure, crew training & acceptance, but also novel standardisation pathways for regulating emissions from ammonia marine engines.

  • Funder: European Commission Project Code: 955413
    Overall Budget: 9,500,000 EURFunder Contribution: 9,500,000 EUR

    The decarbonisation targets of the shipping sector by IMO are extremely challenging and require active measures as soon as possible. ENGIMMONIA comes with solutions that focus on two main pillars: i) promote the global introduction of alternative fuels (ammonia), ii) transfer to maritime sector clean energy technologies robustly demonstrated for terrestrial application (e.g. Waste heat recovery, renewables etc). ENGIMMONIA will indeed study the benefits of using a carbon-free fuel like ammonia (that in any case could have a GHG impact due to N2O emissions that should be properly treated by an EATS to be developed in ENGIMMONIA under AUTH/DTU supervision) in vessel engines also coupling its benefits/performances with other clean energy technologies like: (1) waste heat recovery solutions based on ORC and adsorption chiller for the production of electricity and space cooling respectively, (2) renewables integration on board thanks to the installation of PV composite surface easily installable on vessel structural parts , (3) on board fuel/energy/heat management optimization via real time Energy Mangement System; towards the creation of ENGIMMONIA polygeneration energy hub. Targeting long term full decarbonization of shipping sector, ENGIMMONIA will capitalize previous R&D initiatives that already tested some of these technologies for terrestrial application, moving them to marine sector also from a regulatory/business point of view under RINA coordination, as a naval classification body. To do so technologies will be demonstrated at TRL>5 in real scale engines (MAN) and on board of three vessels: an oil tanker (FAMOUS), a shipping vessel (DANAOS) and a ferry (ANEK) thus proving their replicability on board of different type of vessels. To guarantee ENGIMMONIA innovations wide acceptance, maritime sector’s key players are involved (C-JOB, MAN, RINA-C etc.) while other will interact as stakeholders, also supporting IMO and IACS initiatives at policy/regulatory level.
