Finnish shipowner Meriaura is the latest owner to commit to developing an ammonia-fuelled cargo ship.

The coaster company has teamed up with compatriot technology giant Wartsila for the vessel, as well as fuel provider Green NortH2 Energy.

The ship will be equipped with Wartsila’s modular multi-fuel main engines for delivery in 2024.

Green NortH2 Energy will fuel the ship with green ammonia produced with renewable electricity.
