MoL to ship ammonia for Yara

Japanese shipping firm Mitsui OSK Line (Mol) is to ship ammonia under a charter agreement with Norwegian fertilizer producer Yara.

A 34,500m³ ammonia carrier Green Pioneer will transport ammonia from Europe to Asian countries and Australia, Mol said. The details, such as the contract period, estimated shipping volume and the purpose were undisclosed.

The contract was signed in early December as part of Mol and Yara’s long-term partnership to establish ammonia supply chains, following an initial agreement in 2022 to jointly study clean ammonia and decarbonisation businesses.

The Green Pioneer was built by South Korea’s Hyundai Mipo Dockyard and launched in 2010.
