UK shipowner Purus is teaming up with Dutch floating production, storage and offloading company Bluewater to develop a new fleet of clean energy storage vessels.

The aim is to provide floating storage and offloading solutions worldwide for new fuels such as low-carbon ammonia and clean hydrogen, as well as for carbon capture, utilisation and storage.

“With the shift to a cleaner energy economy underway, the global pursuit of low-carbon fuels is expected to drive strong growth in the ammonia, hydrogen and carbon supply chains over the next several years,” the companies said.
