Hydrogen tanker

A hydrogen tanker is a tank ship designed for transporting liquefied hydrogen.



The World Energy Network research program of the Japanese New Sunshine Project was divided into 3 phases[1] during the period 1993 to 2002, its goal was to study the distribution of liquid hydrogen with hydrogen tankers[2] based on the LNG carrier technology of self-supporting tank designs such as the prismatic and spherical tank. Further research on maritime transport of hydrogen was done in the development for safe utilization and infrastructure of hydrogen project (2003–2007).[3]

Similar to an LNG carrier the boil off gas can be used for propulsion of the ship.
