Amogy’s ammonia-to-power system completes technology verification with LR

The US-based ammonia power solutions company Amogy has completed its technology verification phase with the UK’s classification society Lloyd’s Register.

A technology qualification plan created by Amogy was approved by Lloyd’s Register to confirm the suitability of the core components for Amogy’s ammonia-to-power system, to operate in defined maritime environments. This accomplishment is said to represent a significant milestone in certifying Amogy’s ammonia-to-power system for maritime applications.

The first phase was undertaken in 2022, during which the technology readiness level of its core components and system interfaces were identified and assessed.

Technology qualification is an assessment process that provides confidence that a novel technology can operate safely in a defined environment. Technology verification, which is first phase of the technology qualification process, qualifies risks associated with a new technology, by involving an examination of inherent risks and system integration to verify the integrity of the core technology against a defined set of acceptance criteria.

“The completion of this critical phase is very important for Amogy. It not only provides us with confidence of the suitability of the technology for defined maritime environments, but also demonstrates that the core technology has been independently reviewed by a leading maritime classification society, in relation to the technology’s readiness level,” Seonghoon Woo, CEO of Amogy, commented.

“Earning this qualification from a reputable partner like Lloyd’s Register is a significant step in confirming the safety of our technology as we continue to make our way to commercialization.”

“Having worked with Amogy from the conceptual stage of this technology to seeing it evolve gradually over the years, exemplifies the commitment and perseverance of a dedicated team, singularly focused on producing clean energy for the maritime sector,“ Winston D’Souza, Global Technical Authority for Offshore Renewables and Technology Qualification at Lloyd’s Register, noted.

In 2022, Amogy started work to complete the second phase of technology validation and will continue to work with Lloyd’s Register to complete the full technology qualification process before the commercial deployment.

In related news, Amogy recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Azane Fuel Solutions to explore the technical and commercial feasibility of using Amogy’s ammonia-to-power system on board an Azane-developed bunker vessel concept.
