Proton Ventures is awarded a feasibility study contract by Port of Rotterdam for the Scoping and Conceptual Design of an Ammonia Export terminal in Oakajee, Western Australia. 3 Million tonnes of ammonia per year is expected to be exported by 2030 to Port of Rotterdam via this future ammonia hub.

During this project Proton Ventures will demonstrate the technical and economical feasibility of an integrated port terminal facility for ammonia storage and loading. This facility will be state-of-the-art for ammonia, employing proven technology in a new application for transfer and loading of ammonia onto marine vessels.

Subsea Pipelines

For this project, Proton Ventures as main contractor, works together with Intecsea (designing the subsea pipelines) and Bluewater (designing the SPM) will employ storage tanks in combination with a unique floating Single Point Mooring (SPM). This innovative approach will accelerate the export of ammonia supporting Port of Rotterdams import targets.

This future hub will be deployed in Oakajee, Australia as export outlet for multiple ammonia production facilities to be built in the area.
