WinGD plans to have its first commercial ammonia engine delivery in the first quarter of 2025 as momentum gathers pace on this next upcoming marine fuel.

Executive director of sales Volkmar Galke told TradeWinds that the Swiss-headquartered marine power company expects to see a first vessel on the water six months to nine months after this.

Galke said the discussions around ammonia fuelling are now changing from the shipyards and the engine makers towards the front-end users such as the shipowner, charterer and those producing the ammonia.
