It is carried out by ABS, HHI and the administration Marshall Islands Maritime

The ABS classification society, the group navalmechanic Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and administration Marshall Islands maritime have announced the start of a project to realize what will be the next generation of ships with high transport capacity of liquid carbon dioxide. The initiative involves the construction of ships with a capacity of 74,000 cubic meters, currently the most elevated to the world, based on "super gap" technology developed last year by South Korea's HHI.

"ABS - explained the president and CEO of the US Classification Society, Christopher Wiernicki - worked with HHI on the technology needed to realising the carbon value chain and now, as a result of the progress on the carbon capture platform, we are working on ships that will play a very crucial role in the development of any carbon capture economy." 'The carbon capture and storage market - he added Joo Won-ho, senior executive vice president and technical director of HHI - should follow a trend of continuous growth and interest for ships for the transport of fluid carbon dioxide is on the rise'.
