KBR is launching a examine to develop a carbon-neutral, inexperienced ammonia-based system to energy a semi-submersible drilling unit owned by Odfjell.
KBR will collaborate with Odfjell, Equinor and Wärtsilä to evaluate conversion of the diesel turbines on board drilling models to ammonia-fueled turbines.
“We’re excited to be part of a collaborative effort that may totally combine KBR’s semisubmersible expertise experience, Wärtsilä’s energy techniques, and Odfjell’s and Equinor’s operations capabilities, all to ship a carbon-neutral answer,” stated Jay Ibrahim, president of KBR Sustainable Expertise Options. “This challenge demonstrates the position ammonia can play in decarbonizing current belongings and reaching net-zero targets. We delight ourselves in driving constructive change, innovation and enchancment in key markets, and we’re proud to help our prospects throughout the trade of their transitions to cleaner gas choices.”
KBR is a world-leading ammonia licensor and KBR’s Ok-GreeN® expertise produces carbon-free ammonia based mostly on electrolysis of water. Ok-GreeN is a viable, renewable different to decarbonizing the maritime and delivery industries.
KBR has been supporting Equinor and Odfjell for greater than three a long time with marine expertise, engineering and unique semi-submersible designs.
