In order to achieve the International Maritime Organization's strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, this project will use ammonia as marine-fuel, which is attracting attention from various fields as a candidate for alternative fuels, to develop, own and operate propulsion systems and hulls ahead of other countries, with the aim of implementing ammonia-fueled ships in society under Japan's leadership as early as possible by 2028, so that Japan's maritime industry can maintain its long-term advantage in the field of zero-emission ships.
Role of each company
Together with the four companies involved in this joint project, "K" LINE will continue to work toward the social implementation of ammonia, a promising zero-emission fuel, as a marine-fuel in society.
