Carbon-Neutral KBR to Study, Develop Green Ammonia-Based Power System for Drilling Units
KBR has joined hands with Odfjell, Equinor and Wärtsilä to carry out a study for the development of a green ammonia-based power system for Odfjell’s semi-submersible drilling unit. The company will evaluate the conversion of the diesel generators on board drilling units to ammonia-fueled generators.
Houston/USA – KBR has been awarded a study to develop a carbon-neutral, green ammonia-based power system for a semi-submersible drilling unit owned by Odfjell. KBR will collaborate with Odfjell, Equinor and Wärtsilä to assess conversion of the diesel generators on board drilling units to ammonia-fueled generators.
“We are excited to be a part of a collaborative effort that will fully integrate KBR’s semisubmersible technology expertise, Wärtsilä’s power systems, and Odfjell’s and Equinor’s operations capabilities, all to deliver a carbon-neutral solution,” said Jay Ibrahim, president of KBR Sustainable Technology Solutions. “This project demonstrates the role ammonia can play in decarbonizing existing assets and achieving net-zero targets.”
