CB&I, McDermott’s storage business line, a global provider of engineering and construction solutions, and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), a Korean shipbuilder, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a feasibility study for a large liquid hydrogen (LH2) carrier including an LH2 storage tank design.

The ability to ship large quantities of hydrogen across the ocean is an increasing need to help countries such as South Korea achieve carbon reduction goals in a hydrogen economy.

CB&I will evaluate the LH2 storage tank design for ocean-going ships and DSME will investigate and develop the ship’s general design to install the LH2 storage tank. The output of the feasibility study is expected to contribute to the future design of a large-scale LH2 carrier.

‘The development of LH2 storage for ocean-bound vessels is essential to South Korea’s focus on a carbon-neutral environment,’ says Cesar Canals, senior vice president of CB&I.
