Described as groundbreaking, the contract builds upon the existing memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by Amogy and Green Ships Invest in October 2023.

Under the contract, Green Ships Invest will specifically design their ePSV to be equipped with 2 MW of clean energy capacity by integrating ten of Amogy’s 200 kW ammonia-to-electrical power systems.

In the second phase of the project, Green Ships Invest is planning for the expanded application of Amogy’s systems in two more vessels.

Bourbon Horizon, an international offshore shipping company, will operate these ships, ensuring their integration into the maritime industry’s push towards a greener future.

Green Ships Invest’s 82m ePSV design integrates Amogy’s ammonia-to-electrical power system as its primary propulsion method, in line with DNV regulations.

The vessels will also be equipped with conventional diesel generators to ensure operational reliability, allowing for 100% marine gasoil operation if necessary. The addition of diesel technology provides a fail-safe, ensuring the vessels’ performance and safety without compromising their commitment to sustainability, Green Ships explained.

Christian Berg, Managing Director at Amogy, reflected on the significance of this collaboration: “Our partnership with Green Ships Invest and the operational expertise of Bourbon Horizon represents a crucial milestone in Amogy’s mission to decarbonize the maritime sector. This contract signifies confidence in our ammonia-to-power technology as a viable solution for the industry’s urgent decarbonization needs.”

Per Kavli, CEO of Green Ships Invest, stated: “Securing this contract with Amogy marks a pivotal moment in our journey towards sustainable maritime innovation. It reinforces our commitment to leading the charge in designing and deploying vessels that not only meet but advance global emission reduction targets.”
