NYK Line, Japan Engine Corporation, IHI Power Systems Co., Ltd., and Nihon Shipyard Co., Ltd. (the “Consortium”) received approval in principle (AiP) from ClassNK for an ammonia-fueled ammonia gas carrier (AFAGC).

At present, there are no international regulations for the use of ammonia as marine fuel. Therefore, the Consortium have been conducting research and development to ensure that the AFAGC has the same safety features as vessels using existing fuel oil or LNG (liquefied natural gas) fuel.

The Consortium conducted a HAZID* risk assessment of the safety of using ammonia as marine fuel in anticipation of obtaining approval of an alternative design,** which is indispensable for realizing a demonstration operation in fiscal 2026. The Consortium then received an AiP from Japanese class society ClassNK after concluding that safety can be ensured. This is the first time that a risk assessment has been conducted and an AiP obtained not only for a concept but also an alternative design.
