Environmentally friendly ship designer Green Ships Invest and Amogy, provider of carbon-free energy solutions, have sealed a contract to deploy carbon-free electrical platform supply vessels (ePSVs) through the purchase of Amogy’s technology.

The global ePSV fleet, predominantly aged between 10 to 20 years, faces increasing pressure to comply with more stringent emissions regulations.

As Christian Berg, managing director at Amogy says, “this contract signifies confidence in our ammonia-to-power technology as a viable solution for the industry’s urgent decarbonization needs.”

This deal builds upon the existing partnership between Green Ships Invest and Amogy, which began with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in October 2023.

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

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

It’s worth mentioning that commercial and technical vessel management expert, Bourbon Horizon, will continue operating these ships.

Green Ships Invest’s cutting-edge 82m ePSV design integrates Amogy’s ammonia-to-electrical power system as its primary propulsion method.

As Amogy claims, “this approach aligns with stringent Det Norske Veritas (DNV) regulations.”

The vessels will also be equipped with conventional diesel generators to ensure operational reliability, allowing for 100% Marine Gasoil operation if necessary.
