MAN Energy Solutions has spoken in favor of a maritime energy transition in shipping for many years now and we understand the need to work with a wide group of industry partners to develop sustainable solutions,” said Brian Østergaard Sørensen, vice president, head of Research & Development, Two-Stroke at MAN Energy Solutions. “Ammonia is a fuel with a lot of potential and yet another, important step towards decarbonizing the marine market. We already have a convincing track-record in developing engines running on alternative fuels – having developed the world’s first two-stroke engines driven respectively by methanol, ethane and LPG – and have great expectations for this project.”

As a marine fuel, ammonia has the potential to decarbonize the marine industry, the group said. The project aims to demonstrate – at full-scale – a large marine engine running on ammonia at MAN Energy Solutions’ test facility, Research Centre Copenhagen. The project comprises three main stages:
- Concept development and initial design of an ammonia engine
- Design of an ammonia fuel-supply system
- Full-scale testing
