Canadian shipowning giant Seaspan has revealed a design project that could see the first large ammonia-fuelled container ship hit the water.

The group has been working with the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping on a 15,000-teu neo-panamax dual-fuel prototype.

A new report released today by lead authors Sebastian Brindley of Seaspan and Thomas McKenney from the Maersk Mc-Kinney Center examines the work so far.
