Hydrogen is the most desirable energy source to replace fossil fuels owing to its unique characteristics, such as its environmental impact, availability, and high energy density. There are three ways to store and transport hydrogen energy: compressed gas, a cryogenic liquid, and solid-state storage. The liquid hydrogen method has fewer potential risks than compressed gas in terms of storage pressure. However, storage vessels require advanced insulation techniques to minimize unavoidable heat transfer leading to hydrogen loss via boil-off. In this presentation, we introduce liquid hydrogen storage and transportation technology in the shipbuilding industry.
