H2SITE on-board ammonia cracking technology, awarded an AiP (Approval In Principle) statement.

The H2SITE Ammonia to Hydrogen technology for on-board cracking of ammonia has been awarded an Approval In Principle (AiP) statement by Lloyd's Register (LR). The technology is a containerised on-board solution that produces high quality hydrogen for fuel cells from ammonia. The hydrogen has two potential uses: firstly, in hydrogen fuel cells that can contribute to the ship's power supply, or secondly, for direct consumption in an internal combustion engine.

In awarding the AiP, the fundamental aspects of the design and layout were assessed in compliance with the LR regulation for the classification of ships using gases or other low flashpoint fuels. A preliminary assessment of the rules was conducted, followed by a risk assessment to ensure that the risks arising from the use of ammonia and hydrogen are addressed in accordance with LR's ShipRight Procedure for Risk Based Certification (RBC).

H2SITE operationally demonstrated its ammonia-to-hydrogen conversion technology last November, when the Zumaia Offshore Bertha B vessel was equipped with the ammonia to hydrogen technology on board to validate its performance in real offshore conditions.

Having commissioned the first cracker or fuel cell unit last year on board the Bertha B, H2SITE is now scaling up the technology and designing MW-scale units. These AMMONIA to H2POWER systems will be integrated into both power systems and auxiliary power units to serve a wide range of vessels, ranging from offshore platforms to oil and gas tankers.
