Company profile: Kawasaki Heavy Industries

Kawaski has been developing core technologies at every stage of the supply chain, including: hydrogen liquefiers; liquefied hydrogen storage tanks; liquefied hydrogen carriers; hydrogen loading and unloading terminals; and hydrogen-fueled gas turbines. We want to offer an integrated hydrogen energy supply chain, from production to transportation, storage and utilisation.

Kawasaki’s hydrogen expertise, technologies, and products stem from the company’s decades-long experience in the LNG industry and building LNG carriers.

Since Kawasaki first delivered a liquefied hydrogen storage tank to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) Tanegashima Space Center more than 30 years ago, the company has continued innovating and being industry leaders. Lately, Kawasaki has been developing a mixed-fuel (natural gas + hydrogen) gas turbine and a 100% hydrogen fueled gas turbine.

Kawasaki has also built the Suiso Frontier – the world’s first liquefied hydrogen carrier – and it is attracting attention around the world.
