Bureau Veritas has given approval in principle (AiP) to Mitsubishi Shipbuilding for a cargo tank system to be mounted in a liquefied CO2 (LCO2) carrier.

LCO2 carriers transport liquefied CO2 in a low temperature, high-pressure state. They play a pivotal role in the carbon dioxide capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) process, by transporting CO2 from its emission sources to sites which use or store the gas.

“This AiP recognises that Mitsubishi Shipbuilding’s new LCO2 technology meets our class rules and standards,” said Alex Gregg-Smith, senior vice president & chief executive, North Asia and China at Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore. “BV is proud to help advance innovation and new technology that is much needed to achieve a low-carbon future.”

BV reviewed the design of the LCO2 cargo tank system and confirmed that it meets the technical and regulatory requirements and standards for safety. The inspection of this system was conducted based on the International Gas Carrier code, which applies to marine vessels carrying liquefied gas in bulk, as well as BV’s ship classification regulations.
