Consortium to develop 16,000cbm LH2 containment system


Source: TWI

UK engineering company TWI is one of 14 partners that has received EU funding to develop a 160,000cbm liquified hydrogen (LH2) containment system for ships.

The overall goal of the LH2CRAFT project is to develop a sustainable, commercially attractive, and safe long-term storage solution suitable for long-distance transportation of LH2 for commercial vessels. It aims at developing a membrane-type containment system for high-capacity storage at a temperature of -253 deg C and to demonstrate and validate the technology on a 10-ton (180m3) prototype.

Along with TWI, project partners include HD Korea Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (KSOE), ABS, RINA, BV, engineering company Hydrus Engineering, Technical University of Dresden and Technical University of Athens.
