Seaspan ammonia-powered boxship design unveiled

Working with Seaspan, the world’s largest boxship lessor, the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping yesterday revealed the design of an ammonia-powered 15,000 teu container vessel.

The project is connected to the SABRE Consortium, focusing on developing and demonstrating an ammonia supply chain in Singapore.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is projecting ammonia will account for around 45% of the demand for marine fuels in 2050.

Last week, Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the world’s largest containerline, tapped class society Lloyd’s Register, German engine manufacturer MAN Energy Solutions and Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute (SDARI) for a design for the ammonia dual-fuel operation of a future containership.
