ABS joins project to design ‘pioneering’ liquefied CO2 carrier


Classification society will take part in a joint industry project (JIP) to design a 40,000 cbm liquefied carbon dioxide (LCO2) carrier alongside Ecolog Services Ltd. (ECOLOG), Hanwha Ocean Co. (Hanwha), and Babcock International Liquid Gas Equipment (LGE).

The design aims to maximise energy integration and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while being cargo versatile and capable of offshore offloading, as in the direct injection of liquid CO2, according to ABS.
