What could be the world’s first ammonia-fuelled tanker is set to enter service in 2025.

The vessel will be designed and built by the Castor Initiative, a coalition of high-profile shipping industry players who said that the addition two new members has created the complete ecosystem to bring the project to fruition.

The coalition made the announcement during a webinar on ammonia as marine fuel organised by the Getting to Zero Coalition’s Fuels & Technologies workstream on Tuesday.
