03.05.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

March 5, 2024 [Safety 4 Sea]- Berge Bulk, placed an order for two ammonia dual fuel vessels from Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industry.


The two 210,000-DWT Newcastlemax vessels will meet the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) Tier III NOx (nitrogen oxides) standards and Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) Phase 3 compliance for greenhouse gas emissions and be powered by ammonia.


Three key milestones

Berge Bulk has set an ambitious decarbonisation timeline which consists of three key milestones:

  1. Achieve carbon neutrality by 2025.
  2. Build and operate a zero-emissions vessel by 2030.
  3. Achieve zero emissions fleetwide by 2050.

To meet this timeline, Berge Bulk has developed the four-pillar “Marshall Plan”. The plan focuses on (1) improving fleet efficiency; (2) leveraging the latest maritime technology; (3) converting to new fuels; and (4) capturing the remaining carbon directly or indirectly.

The use of ammonia fuel represents an important milestone in our commitment to operate a zero emissions vessel by 2030 and an essential pillar in our plan to decarbonise. We continue to take urgent action in all four areas of our strategy to effectively reduce our current emissions and achieve carbon neutrality by 2025- said James Marshall, CEO and Founder, Berge Bulk.

The move toward new fuels complements Berge Bulk’s many other decarbonisation efforts and projects including a comprehensive programme of energy efficiency retrofits, innovative pilots for new wind technology, and a commitment to plant 25 million trees in the coming years.

Ammonia is a promising zero-carbon fuel for the future of the shipping industry. Berge Bulk has been actively engaged in discussions with key players in the ammonia supply chain- Paolo Tonon, Chief Technical Officer, Berge Bulk said.
