Ammonia fuel producer Amogy has expanded operations to Houston with a new $40m, four acre site set to open early next year.
“We chose Houston as the energy capital of the world because we wanted to be near customers, suppliers, and the right talent as we ramp up operations. We are eager to begin manufacturing so we can deliver to customers globally,” said Seonghoon Woo, CEO and co-founder of Amogy.
Founded in 2020 by four MIT PhD alumni, Amogy aims to enable the decarbonisation of the hard-to-abate sectors, such as shipping, power generation, and heavy-duty transportation, with its ammonia-based, emission-free, high energy-density power solutions.
To date, Amogy’s ammonia-to-power technology has been demonstrated with success in a drone, tractor, and semi-truck, and the Amogy team is currently retrofitting a tugboat to be the world’s-first ammonia-powered vessel.
