This is a critical turning point for environmentally friendly maritime transportation.

As part of the project, NCL Oslofjord AS will be established as a joint venture to run the ammonia-powered ship.

It has received about NOK 40 million ($3.6 million) in support from the Norwegian government enterprise Enova.

The goal of this project is to establish itself as the first-line operator in the world focused solely on ammonia-powered container ships.

In addition to being revolutionary in terms of the environment, the Yara Eyde also has a 250 kWh battery pack and the capacity to connect to shore power, which further improves its contribution to the environment.

The operational route of the vessel, which connects Oslo, Brevik, Hamburg, and Bremerhaven, is intended to become the first maritime route to reach Europe without producing any emissions.

It is a significant advancement toward encouraging greener maritime transportation.

Yara Clean Ammonia expects Yara Eyde to be operational by 2026. Pure ammonia fueling emphasises the maritime sector’s dedication to sustainability and lowering carbon emissions.

In line with international efforts to decarbonise the shipping sector, ammonia has been gaining traction as a promising alternative fuel.

The ship’s cutting-edge construction and operation support the shift to more ecologically friendly shipping methods.
