Ascension Clean Energy (ACE)

An innovative, state-of-the-art project,  Ascension Clean Energy (ACE) would utilize clean hydrogen-ammonia production to supply the world's growing clean energy market. Helping to meet the demand for clean and affordable energy, this hydrogen-ammonia would be shipped to global markets as a clean energy feedstock.

Hafnia has a proven track record of transporting hydrocarbons safely and sustainably around the world to meet emerging demand for shipping and energy production.


As one of the world’s largest shipping companies, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) is well-positioned to help develop safe, sustainable, and efficient solutions to ship ACE’s clean hydrogen-ammonia to emerging global clean energy markets.

We are excited to work with Clean Hydrogen Works and the State of Louisiana on this important clean energy project that aligns with our mission to sustainably deliver energy that the world needs. Our existing CO2 pipeline infrastructure along the Gulf Coast, part of the largest owned and operated CO2 network in the United States, is perfectly situated to handle the CO2 emissions from this massive project and to ensure that the carbon captured is safely transported and secured in underground storage. We look forward to creating significant value with our partners, for our shareholders, and for the local and state economies of Louisiana.”

-Denbury President and CEO Chris Kendall
