Under a new memorandum of understanding (MoU), H2Carrier and Trelleborg Gas Transfer will work cooperatively to develop ship-to-ship ammonia transfer solutions.
The companies aims to create a safe, reliable and efficient solution to enable the side-by-side offloading of ammonia when operating the H2Carrier-developed P2XFloater (a floating vessel that is capable of producing green hydrogen and ammonia) on sheltered near-shore projects.
The project scope will be based on Trelleborg’s KLAW LNG technology which is already being used to support an array of international LNG operations. The solution has been upgraded to operate with liquid ammonia, and at present, both parties are working to identify the most effective transfer system layout and operational procedures that will be implemented on the P2XFloater.
Trelleborg’s KLAW LNG solution enables the P2XFloater to be used as an ammonia export terminal for the green ammonia produced and stored onboard the vessel, reducing the need for onshore infrastructure. When it comes to conducting operations in a truly offshore environment, both companies foresee the use of other more suitable transfer solutions including tandem offloading.
