CLASS NK ISSUES AiP FOR MOL’S LARGE-SCALE CO2 CARRIER

Aug 23, 2022 | Ship design & naval architecture news

Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has received Approval in Principle (AiP) for the design of a large-scale liquefied carbon dioxide (CO2) carrier from Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK).

In June 2021, MOL launched an R&D programme on the adoption of a large-scale liquefied CO2 carrier in response to a call for proposals by Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO) to complete the conceptual design, under a project entrusted by NEDO to Japan CCS to investigate carbon capture, utilsation and storage (CCUS). The vessel design is one element of NEDO’s ‘CCUS R&D and Demonstration Related Project/Large-scale CCUS Demonstration Project in Tomakomai/Demonstration Project on CO2 Transportation’.

The large-scale liquefied CO2 carrier is intended as a practical solution to the need for long-distance transport of CO2 on a scale of 1m t/yr, based on NEDO’s vision to implement CCUS technology.
