The transport chain for green ammonia via sea starts and ends with a terminal in each case. Terminals therefore represent land-based collection or distribution hubs. As a result, they have a very significant infrastructural function. Due to this importance, the CAMPFIRE project CF10_3 onshore ammonia refueling plant with partners University Rostock, ZBT, ISC and INP with CAMPFIRE Open Innovation Lab (COIL) is dedicated to developing a demonstrator refueling plant for fuel supply of ships with green ammonia in Rostock.
The goal is to develop a new type of shore-side refueling system with an innovative warming station to raise the temperature while maintaining the same pressure.
Since start of the project, the team so far fixed the basic design of the heat generator. In this course, the infrastructure planning, the basic operating data and the safety interfaces of the pilot plant at COIL were determined. In parallel, a HAZID and HAZOP study were performed for a conceptual future plant. The modeling of the dynamic operation of refueling cycles was further elaborated by the partners. Currently, energetic considerations of large-scale shore-to-ship ammonia handling are carried out.The refueling facility is to be suitable for future climate-neutral shore-to-ship refueling and an initial functional model for operation with cryogenic and pressure-stored NH3 is to be implemented for this purpose. The results will be used to derive a concept for a future ship refueling facility in the Rostock energy port.
