LNG has paved the way for new LH2 carrier containment system

A new ship design concept for the carriage of liquified hydrogen (LH2) will evolve from experience gained with LNG but faces unique technical challenges.

GTT, TotalEnergies, LMG Marin and Bureau Veritas (BV) are developing a 150,000m3 capacity LH2 carrier concept design which will be fitted with a membrane-type containment system from GTT. The ability to safely transport large volumes of hydrogen in liquefied form at -253°C (only 20°C above absolute zero) is one of the major technological challenges that the project partners aim to overcome to ensure a reliable, efficient, safe and competitive global carbon-free hydrogen value chain.
