Marine robotics firm Ocean Infinity has embarked on a project to develop low-emission ammonia-fueled propulsion systems for possible integration into the company’s planned fleet of unmanned surface vehicles (USVs).

As part of the project, the company will build a marine propulsion test facility that will demonstrate clean-fueled technology using an innovative ammonia-based fuel cell system. The construction of the new facility is being funded by the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition initiative of the UK Department for Transport and Innovate UK.

Ocean Infinity’s partners on the project include Oxford Green Innotech, the University of Oxford, and the University of Southampton’s Marine and Maritime Institute.
