New vessel design supports liquefied hydrogen bunkering

Moss Maritime, Equinor, Wilhelmsen, and DNV-GL have developed a design for a liquefied hydrogen (LH2) bunker vessel. Large-scale use of hydrogen across both the land and maritime sectors will require specific vessels tailored to transporting and bunkering liquefied hydrogen. The project, sponsored by Innovation Norway, aims to clarify challenges and find solutions for storage and...
