Green and blue ammonia are expected to become increasingly important fuel types for the shipping industry, requiring new bunkering infrastructure. Some ports will be retrofitted, but because the energy density is less than fossil based fuels, there will be a substantial need for additional infrastructure. Constructing this infrastructure with conventional methods for bunkering, such as constructing jetties, represents significant costs and environmental interventions.
ECONNECT Energy’s floating IQuay™ is designed to safely transfer ammonia in bulk and for bunkering purposes. The universal design of the IQuay transfer system enables connection to any terminal and ship type according to specific needs. The transfer system is flexible and can be deployed quickly and without the environmental impact of building conventional marine infrastructure. With the IQuay ammonia can be:
Ammonia can be transported by a variety of ship types depending on temperature and pressure specifications.
Loading and Unloading
ECOnnect Energy was born from first-hand experience with the challenges and inefficiencies of traditional LNG offloading methods from ship to shore. Our core offerings remove the need for fixed and permanent infrastructure such as quays, jetties, trestle structures and loading platforms.
Dredging, which is expensive and damaging to coastal areas, can be eliminated with ECOnnect’s floating jettyless transfer solution.
