UK-based shipowner Navigator Gas has been awarded a new approval in principle (AIP) for an ammonia-fueled gas carrier design from classification society DNV.

The design was the work of a collaboration between Navigator Gas and a consortium formed by MAN Energy Solutions, Babcock International, and the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA).

The new gas carrier design has been awarded the AIP based on the special features notation (GF NH3) under DNV’s new rules for the use of ammonia as fuel in gas carriers. Navigator Gas said that DNV, alongside the NMA, reviewed the design and relevant documentation and found no potential impediments.
