KR awards AiP to Hanwha Ocean’s Onboard CCS System
An onboard CO2 Capture System (OCCS) developed by Hanwha Ocean received Approval in Principle (AiP) from KR, in collaboration with the Marshall Islands Registry. The award was announced during Kormarine 2023 in Busan, South Korea.
The onboard carbon capture and storage technology developed by Hanwha Ocean absorbs CO2 generated on board using absorbents and converts it into mineral form. The OCCS incorporating this technology consumes very little energy compared to other CO2 capture technologies, and the amount of additional CO2 generated during its operation is relatively small. Furthermore, its compact design ensures efficiency in implementation.
KR verified the stability and suitability of the OCCS by reviewing classification rules and domestic and international regulations in collaboration with the Marshall Islands Registry.
