We are still so very chuffed about an invitation by the Maritime Directors to the Ammonia Energy Association, Sofia and Conor Fürstenberg Stott to present at the Maritime Ammonia Insights webinar. This is a great monthly webinar series for the AEA and extended networks, exploring current developments in progressing ammonia as a maritime fuel, with purpose to connect audience and share knowledge in this emerging field. It was a great honour for our CAMPFIRE partners of the CF09 GreenBalticCruising consortium Sebastian Prochnow, Port Rostock, Malte Zeretzke, Carnival Maritim, Donald Höpfner, YARA and Urs Vogler, DNV, to scope and conducting the webinar on 6 April 2023, guided and moderated so excellently by Sofia Fürstenberg Stott. Thank you so much for this great opportunity and support dear Sofia!
CAMPFIRE GreenBalticCruising – Feasibility of Marine Renewable Ammonia in Rostock for Baltic Sea Cruise Liners, 6. Apr. 2023 11:00 AM
Imagine it’s a calm summer’s day in the Port of Rostock, a slight breeze against a pale sky. You are just about to step onto Carnival’s new cruise liner to embark on an island hopping experience across the Baltic Sea. From this north-German coastal city, a huge number of cargo boats, passenger ferries and cruise liners embark for neighbouring Baltic Sea harbours every day. But it’s not only the Baltic scenery that’s special — this cruise liner has just fueled up with renewable ammonia at the Port of Rostock, and your zero-carbon journey across the Baltic will be powered by ammonia fuel. This is the idea behind the CAMPFIRE project, GreenBalticCruising, which is looking into the techno-economic and safety viability of such a concept. Carnival Maritime, together with Port of Rostock, Yara, DNV, IKEM, ZBT and INP, aim to find answers to ammonia bunkering feasibility in Rostock, harbour structures, ship design, ammonia supply, timelines, among other factors. The project will further conduct a technical evaluation of a new propulsion system that consists of an ammonia cracker and a fuel cell that uses ammonia in order to compare its performance to that of a propulsion system powered by LNG. We’ll be joined by Sebastian Prochnow (Rostock Port GmbH), Malte Zeretzke (Carnival Maritime GmbH), Dr. Donald Höpfner (Yara GmbH & Co KG) and Dr. Urs Vogler (DNV) for a discussion of the CAMPFIRE project, moderated by AEA Maritime Director Sofia Fürstenberg Stott.
