Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has completed a concept study on a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for ammonia fuel in collaboration with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding.

In addition, MOL, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, and Kansai Electric Power Company have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to jointly conduct a study to introduce the ammonia FSRU as part of a broader program of decarbonising power generation worldwide.

In the concept study, the team examined specifications of several cases with different conditions such as tank size and regasification method to meet a broad range of needs. In addition, the team developed a design concept of a lower environmental impact FSRU that would be powered by electricity generated with ammonia fuel.

MOL, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, and Kansai Electric Power are continuing their study aimed at introducing ammonia FSRUs in various regions of the world.
