DFDS joins green power project

[ February 26, 2021   //   ]

DFDS has partnered with major Danish organisations including Arla, Maersk, Danish Crown and DLG in a Power-to-Ammonia alternative fuel project. It says that green ammonia is an ideal replacement for fuel oil on ferries because it is produced by a 100% renewable and carbon-free process. It can be burnt in a solid oxide fuel cell with only water and nitrogen as a by-product. The project will be based in Esbjerg and aims to produce around 50,000 tonnes of green fuel and possibly serve as a North Sea fuel hub. The facility is expected to be operational in 2026.
