Exmar, Lattice to work on new CO2 carrier

Belgian shipowner Exmar is joining forces with tank designer Lattice Technology to develop a new type of CO2 carrier.

The duo signed a joint development agreement for the design of a 40,500 cbm CO₂ carrier. It will be able to carry LPG but also ammonia, Exmar said in a statement.

“A study proved that the patented Lattice tank design, Lattice Pressure Vessel (LPV), provides the best solution for large-scale CO₂ transportation at low and medium pressures,” the statement said.

Also, the design and vessel size can be adjusted to meet all required transport volumes.

Ammonia, LPG, LNG storage

According to Exmar, the initial concept is a 195 meters long Panamax vessel with a cargo capacity of 40,500 cbm.

Such a vessel could support CCUS projects with capacities ranging from 2 to 10 MTPA, Exmar said.

Additionally, the partners plan a 3,000 cbm storage capacity for low-carbon fuels like LPG, ammonia, or LNG, it said.

Offshore solution

The patented tank design will also provide a storage solution for offshore CO₂ liquefaction or re-injection projects.

Exmar said the robust pressurized storage tanks can be made in an efficient shape fitting the ship hull. This allows for a large storage capacity.

An additional benefit for offshore storage is that the LPV design prevents sloshing problems
even in the harshest environments, it said.

Exmar added its experience in floating gas infrastructure solutions makes it the
“ideal partner” for such developments.
