World's first ammonia-powered vessel christened


President Hage Geingob has christened the world’s first ammonia-powered supply vessel, developed by Australia-based company Fortescue Future Industries.

Dr. Geingob was invited by Fortescue Executive Chairman and Founder Andrew Forrest to unveil the Fortescue Green Pioneer vessel, which has been converted to run in dual-fuel mode as it moves away from fossil fuels.

The vessel sailed from its base in Singapore and docked in Dubai, where world leaders, including President Geingob, are renewing calls for increased investments in renewable energy sources and projects.
