GEAR | Mitsubishi Shipbuilding delivers ammonia fuel supply system for large, low-speed marine engines
Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has completed delivery of an ammonia fuel supply system for large, low-speed two stroke marine engines to Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG), a manufacturer of marine engines.
J-ENG is currently conducting tests of ammonia fuel under various conditions utilising an experimental, large-scale, low-speed two stroke marine engine located at the MHI Research and Innovation Centre in Nagasaki District. The ammonia fuel supply system supplied by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has been installed at the Nagasaki District facility, and supplies the ammonia fuel used to conduct the tests.
Mitsubishi said ammonia is attracting attention as a fuel that contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the maritime industry. The company expects the fuel to be utilised as a stable clean energy in the future.
