Classification society DNV has issued an Approval in Principle (AiP) for the design of a green ammonia tanker that also runs on green ammonia developed by LMG Marin, Wärtsilä and Grieg Edge.

According to developers, the MS Green Ammonia got the AiP last week confirming the feasibility of the design.

Getting the approval was not unexpected, but still something we are happy to announce. It is a major milestone in getting one of the first green ammonia-fueled vessels in operation”, said head of Grieg Edge, Nicolai Grieg.

The MS Green Ammonia is a projected green ammonia-fueled green ammonia tanker that is a part of the larger Berlevåg project in the north of Norway where a group of Norwegian companies intends to use wind from Raggovidda to produce green ammonia.

As informed earlier, the tanker will distribute green ammonia from the planned factory in Berlevåg to various locations and end-users along the coast and will also be able to handle ship-to-ship bunkering.
