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.
Samsung C&T collaborated with Whessoe, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of low-temperature and cryogenic storage tanks, to enhance the technology for this DNV-certified project throughout the year.
Armed with this certification, Samsung C&T aims to accelerate the expansion of its green hydrogen and ammonia business, leveraging the advanced design and capabilities of these liquid hydrogen storage tanks.
Yoon Jong-Yi, Vice president of Samsung C&T’s construction division says: ‘This certification will serve as a driving force for the company’s future green business. We are committed to further developing our technology to bolster our business competitiveness.’
