MODEC, Inc. ("MODEC") is pleased to announce that SOFEC Inc. (“SOFEC”), a MODEC
Group company, has been awarded an Approval in Principle (AiP) by DNV for the newly developed Ammonia
Transfer System using two mooring technologies 1) CALM Buoy and 2) Tower Mooring solutions.
Both CALM Buoy and Tower Mooring solutions are part of SOFEC’s proven product lines. The ability to further
extend this mooring technology to support Energy Transition projects is an exciting next phase for SOFEC.
Refrigerated liquids such as ammonia and other e-fuels are increasingly becoming more important than ever
due to their potential as one of the most economically sustainable low emission fuels. SOFEC’s business
objectives are tailored to focus on supporting the core industry principles of safe and sustainable offshore
solutions. While the industry is striving towards blue and green ammonia production and storage, this new
development is aimed to alleviate the challenge of transporting liquid ammonia from an onshore terminal to a
remote offshore tanker and vice versa. Hence, this ammonia transfer system development is a significant
contribution by SOFEC to continue developing an environmentally safe and sustainable energy industry.
