ABS joins forces with Hyundai and RMI to develop large LCO2 carrier

Classification society ABS has joined forces with South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Group and the Republic of the Marshall Islands Maritime Administrator to develop what it says is the world’s largest liquefied carbon dioxide (LCO2) carrier.

The LCO2 carrier design has a capacity of 74,000 cbm. It builds on the 40,000 cbm “super gap” technology developed in 2021 by HHI – which includes Hyundai Glovis, G-Marine service, and KSOE.

Under the project, ABS will verify the design, leading to basic design approval, while the RMI Maritime Administrator will help with design acceptance and equivalent arrangements, according to a statement by ABS.

The announcement follows the recent joint development project to advance carbon capture technologies between ABS and HHI.

ABS has awarded approval in principle to the carbon dioxide injection platform developed by HHI Group.

The platform will store carbon dioxide previously captured on land, liquefied at high pressure, and transported to the sea through a carrier or pipeline.

HHI Group has developed this platform with the goal of storing annually 400,000 tons of carbon dioxide underground in Korea’s East Sea gas field starting in 2025.
