Amogy has developed an ammonia-to-electrical power system that splits, or “cracks”, liquid ammonia into its base elements of hydrogen and nitrogen and then funnels the hydrogen into a fuel cell, generating power at five times the energy density of lithium batteries. The technology is tailored for industries such as maritime shipping and power generation.

Under the MoU, Amogy and W-Industries intend to explore opportunities for efficiently scaling the design and fabrication of modularized and containerized variants of Amogy’s products. This includes the establishment of a joint commissioning and service-support structure for future projects and product deployments.

“Our partnership with Amogy represents a significant step in W-Industries’ history and our drive towards supporting sustainable energy solutions,” said Michael Bain, SVP at W-Industries. “We are looking forward to leveraging our process knowledge and packaging expertise to support the commercial development of Amogy’s ammonia-to-power solutions and continuing to build a long-term partnership.” 

Seonghoon Woo, CEO at Amogy, added: “We’re excited to formalize this partnership with W-Industries. By combining our expertise and resources, we aim to unlock new possibilities and to optimize Amogy’s commercial offerings. Together, we’re poised to deliver enhanced value to our customers and drive positive impact in our industry.” 

Amogy’s ammonia-to-electrical-power system will also be integrated as the primary propulsion method in the design of carbon-free electrical platform supply vessels (ePSVs) to be developed by Green Ships Invest.

Amogy and Green Ships recently strengthened their partnership, which was initiated in October 2023, by signing a “groundbreaking” commercial contract.
