ABS approves HHI CO2 ocean injection system


A large scale, carbon dioxide (CO2) injection system from Hyundai Heavy Industries Group (HHI Group) has been awarded approval in principle by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

The 1m tonne injection system will allow for offshore CO2 storage in geological formations under the ocean floor and more than doubles the previous injection capacity, supporting development of the carbon value chain and global decarbonisation goals.

Christopher J. Wiernicki, ABS Chairman, President and CEO, said, “Net zero cannot realistically be achieved without efficient carbon capture and storage technology. ABS is committed to delivering industry-leading support for transformational technologies such as these which have such a critical role to play in creating a more sustainable industry.”

The injection system will be installed and operated on a floating offshore platform, receiving CO2 from visiting gas carriers. The system will be equipped with a powerless CO2 heating circuit where the heating medium is circulated in a closed loop using seawater and without an external power source, which is designed to improve efficiency and allow the capture of the emitted gas to be stored underground on site.
