ABS Verifies SHI Design for Liquefied Hydrogen Carrier

Report this content

(MILAN) A 20,000 cbm Liquefied Hydrogen Carrier design from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has received ABS approval in principle (AIP).

The AIP which was presented at the Gastech conference is the culmination of a joint development project (JDP) to review and prove various elements of the vessel design including Type C cargo tanks, cargo handling and fuel gas supply systems.

“As the hydrogen value chain develops, shipping will have a critical role to play. By supporting the safe and efficient transport of hydrogen at sea, ABS is also playing an important part in the energy transition,” said Patrick Ryan, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Engineering and Technology.

“SHI has secured key technologies for the design of liquefied hydrogen carriers from recent development projects and is preparing for the future liquefied hydrogen carrier market through detailed design development and verifications,” said Young-Gyu Kang, SHI Executive Vice President, CTO.
