Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is currently developing the Mitsubishi Ammonia Supply and Safety System (MAmmoSS), an ammonia handling system to support the utilization of ammonia as marine fuel.
s part of this development project, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has begun demonstration testing of the Ammonia Gas Abatement System (AGAS), a subsystem of MAmmoSS to safely treat surplus ammonia.
Using the AGAS demonstration facility at the Nagasaki District MHI Research & Innovation Center, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will conduct demonstration tests of the processing performance under various scenarios simulating onboard ammonia operations.
MammoSS comprises several subsystems in addition to AGAS, including a high-pressure/low-pressure ammonia fuel supply system (AFSS) and an ammonia fuel tank system.
The company also intends to investigate expanding the marine industry’s scope through partnerships with makers of complementary equipment. The developed ammonia-related technologies will be used in a variety of sectors to enable its secure handling.
