On-Shore NH3 Refueling System CF10_3
Project duration: 04/2021–03/2024
Aim of project:
In order to take over ammonia imports as base load supply for large consumers, a shore-side transhipment facility for the future supply of ships (loading of transport ships as well as bunkering of ammonia-fueled ships) is designed in the subproject CF10_3 of the implementation project “CAMPFIRE” in the energy port of Rostock and implemented in the test field of COIL. It should be possible to deliver the ammonia both pressure liquefied and cryogenic liquefied. Due to the different quantities and cycles (for different refueling scenarios), high demands are placed on the heat management of the heating station for the ammonia. In the future, the use of heat generators based on fossil fuels, which have high dynamics and very good power control characteristics, will no longer be possible. Heat will then be generated with hydrogen obtained from ammonia or by direct use of ammonia. Currently, however, such technologies are not yet available or cannot yet meet the requirements in terms of variability and performance as well as dynamic behavior during load changes. The aim is therefore to develop appropriate systems.
