Singapore’s Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) is taking a proactive approach to decarbonization in the maritime industry. The company has partnered with MAN Energy Solutions to develop ammonia-fueled engines and has signed a series of Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with shipbuilders, class societies, designers, and Singapore’s Maritime and Port Authority to advance ammonia-fueled shipping. EPS plans to incorporate these engines into a fleet of vessels it will operate, paving the way for wider adoption across the industry. The ammonia dual-fuel engines will be fitted in EPS-managed vessels scheduled for delivery from 2026 onwards. EPS believes this will be a significant step towards zero carbon emissions in ocean-going vessels.

Several organizations, including the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Lloyd’s Register, have also signed MoUs with EPS and MAN ES. Qingdao Beihai Shipyard and Jiangnan Shipyard have been designated to build the EPS-managed vessels fueled by ammonia. EPS is also collaborating with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore to explore the use of ammonia for international shipping and develop the necessary infrastructure.

EPS aims to lead the industry in the adoption of ammonia as a long-term fuel alternative for the maritime sector. The company’s efforts to develop and employ ammonia-fueled engines are expected to contribute to the industry’s understanding and application of this environmentally friendly fuel.
