Samsung C&T Corporation, headquartered in South Korea, has received certification from Det Norske Veritas (DNV) for its design of the world’s largest liquid hydrogen storage tank.

The tank, with a 40,000 m2 capacity, is equipped to store up to 2,800 tons of liquid hydrogen at incredibly low cryogenic temperatures of -252.8 degrees Celsius. This substantial capacity enables simultaneous refuelling of over 500,000 hydrogen cars.
