Client: Oceania Marine Energy
BE&R completed a feasibility study into Ammonia bunkering in the Port of Dampier. The project objective to close the infrastructure and technology gap between the supply of alternative fuels and the developing shipping market. The client aims to fill this gap with a series of alternative fuel bunker vessels, enabling decarbonisation of the marine industry.
The study scope covered; the definition of the alternative fuelled shipping market between Dampier and Asia; the infrastructure requirements and interfaces required to conduct bunkering operations from the existing port facilities. Generation of bunkering operation procedures with input from our marine operation experts to define the robust methods of operation required to safely and reliably bunker Ammonia.
BE&R engaged across industry stakeholders, hosting a technical safety and risk workshop gathering alignment from all parties. Regulatory and Approval processes were assessed with the gaps highlighted for further definition and governing authority engagement. A high-level cost and schedule estimate to the start of operations was fed into the overall bunkering operation economics to generate financial outcomes. Resulting in a detailed execution plan defining the proceeding scopes and deliverables to be completed in upcoming project development and operation phases.
