MOL, MITSUI AND MAN ES SIGN MoU FOR AMMONIA-FUELLED PROPULSION

Monday, October 18, 2021 

Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) reports that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with MAN Energy Solutions and Mitsui E&S Machinery which is expected to lead to a purchase contract for an ammonia fuelled main engine which is currently under development by MAN ES.

According to MOL, ammonia is one of the top candidates as next-generation clean fuel that does not emit CO2. Through MOL's Group Environmental Vision 2.1 it continually strives to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050 and to deploy net zero emissions ocean-going vessels within the 2020s. The order for ammonia fuelled main engines will contribute to the net zero emission vessel aim, to contribute to the company's vision of a decarbonised society.
