Keppel unit to explore ammonia-fired gas turbine adoption on Jurong Island

The study will be conducted alongside Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and DNV.
 
Keppel New Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure, will explore the use of 100% ammonia as a fuel for a gas turbine or combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) alongside Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and global independent energy expert, DNV. 
 
The parties will conduct the high-level Quantitative Risk Assessment on Jurong Island.
 
Under the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by Keppel New Energy will study the feasibility of ammonia fuelled power plant, whilst MHI will develop an ammonia-fired gas turbine that produces carbon-neutral power.
 
DNV, for its part, will lend its assurance and risk management expertise to prepare and present a QRA analysis on the project.
 
Through the MoU, Keppel, MHI, and DNV aim to draw up robust assessment guidelines to ensure the safety and sustainability of ammonia as a clean fuel, while maintaining high efficiency and low NOx emissions for use in a gas turbine system for power generation.
