Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has been awarded a contract by Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) for the supply of an ammonia fuel supply system (AFSS) and an ammonia gas abatement system (AGAS).

The ammonia fuel supply system (AFSS) is designed to provide ammonia fuel to marine engines developed by J-ENG, while the ammonia gas abatement system (AGAS) will safely handle any excess ammonia. These newly ordered systems, along with an integrated control system, will be remotely operated automatically. Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is scheduled to deliver the modules to J-ENG by 2025.

Transitioning from fossil fuels to environmentally sustainable alternatives is imperative for the global maritime industry to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by approximately 2050, as outlined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Given that ammonia emits no CO2 upon combustion, the adoption of ammonia fuel is anticipated to play a pivotal role in advancing decarbonized infrastructure within the maritime sector.

In line with MHI Group's commitment to advancing the energy transition, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will leverage its accumulated expertise in ammonia handling, gained from its experience in building transport carriers, to provide high-quality products with utmost safety and reliability as a shipboard ammonia handling systems manufacturer. Furthermore, as a maritime system integrator, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will continue to support the development of marine logistics and contribute to global efforts to reduce the environmental impact of the maritime industry by offering shipbuilding engineering services for ammonia-fueled vessels, along with construction support and other tailored services to meet customer requirements.

In conclusion, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding's pioneering initiatives in green maritime solutions underscore its pivotal role in shaping the future of sustainable transportation. With a steadfast commitment to innovation, safety, and environmental stewardship, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and MHI Group are poised to lead the maritime industry towards a brighter, greener future.
