Kawasaki obtains AiP for world’s largest containment for a liquefied hydrogen carrier

Kawasaki Heavy Industries has obtained approval in principle (AiP) from Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) for a cargo containment system (CCS) offering the world’s largest capacity for use in a large liquified hydrogen carrier.

The CCS for which the AiP was obtained for is designed to contain cryogenic liquefied hydrogen, reduced to a temperature of -253 degrees Celsius and on eight-hundredth its initial volume, for shipping by sea in large amounts.

The containment system is being developed using design, construction and safety technologies fostered through building of the Suiso Frontier, a pioneering liquefied hydrogen carrier built by Kawasaki that boasts a 1,250 m3 carrying capacity.
