Amogy, Skansi and SEAM Sign MoU to Explore Ammonia as Fuel for Offshore Supply Vessels

The project is an important step towards decar­bonizing sustainable technology in the maritime industry

Stavanger, Faroe Islands and Karmøy – May 19, 2023Amogy Inc., a pioneer of emission-free, energy-dense ammonia power solutions, Skansi Offshore, a shipping company located in the capital of the Faroe Islands, and Norwegian system developer and integrator SEAM, have entered into a Memorandum of Under­standing (MoU).

The purpose of this agreement is for the three parties to investigate potential technology collab­o­ra­tion in the field of ammonia application, with the common goal of decar­bonizing the offshore industry. The first focus of this collab­o­ra­tion is a possible retrofit of Amogy’s proprietary ammonia-to-power system on one of Skansi’s existing vessels, allowing it to operate with zero emissions. This opportunity allows all parties to work together in pursuit of a decar­bonized shipping industry.

Managing Director of Amogy Norway, Christian W. Berg, expressed his excitement about collab­o­rating with these esteemed and forward-thinking partners who share an ambitious vision for a greener and more sustainable future. Given the whole industry’s strong commitment to clean fuels, it is crucial for us to make a positive impact here,” said Berg. We believe our partnership with Skansi and SEAM can serve as a compelling inspiration for other maritime operators to follow.”

Gunvald Mortvedt, CEO of SEAM, says this project is a testimony of the industry’s dedication to push tech­no­log­ical boundaries to achieve zero-emission shipping. We are very proud to have been chosen as a system partner in this exciting project. We believe in Amogy’s ammonia-to-power solution, and are confident that, through close collab­o­ra­tion with both companies, we will be able to realize Skansi’s important goals for a zero-emission offshore supply vessel, and thus showcase another tech­no­log­ical milestone for zero-emission shipping.”

We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with Amogy and SEAM to combine our envi­ron­men­tally friendly and innovative tech­nolo­gies,” said Jens Meinhard Rasmussen, CEO of Skansi Offshore. Integrating Amogy’s ammonia-to-hydrogen technology in our vessel is a significant step in the right direction, bringing us closer to our long-term goal of decar­bonizing the maritime industry and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Addi­tion­ally, this partnership will help accelerate the global transition towards clean energy sources, furthering our commitment to sustainable practices in the maritime sector.”
