SHI Gets Awarded AiP By DNV For Liquified CO2 Carrier Design


  • DNV has awarded AiP to Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for innovative liquified CO2 carrier design.
  • The creation comprises reliable cargo handling systems with efficient reliquification technology.
  • SHI’s new system will help the shipping industry in future large-scale transportation of CO2 demands.
  • The ship features a reliquification system that condenses vaporized and compressed CO2 by a refrigeration process.

SHI was awarded an AiP by DNV for the creation of a reliable liquified CO2 carrier design, says DNV.


The AiP presented by DNV to SHI at the Gastech 2022 Exhibition in Milan confirmed that DNV has reviewed SHI’s designs against the requirements of the IGC code and its policies relevant to CO2 carriers.

The ship developed by SHI has optimized cargo space and ship performance by utilizing customized bi-lobe cargo tanks. This new system is expected to help the shipping industry with future large-scale CO2 transportation demands as the number of carbon capture, utilization and storage projects grow. The ship uses a re-liquefication system that condenses vaporized and compressed CO2 by a refrigeration process.

Collaborators’ Response

The Vice President and SHI’s Head of Shipbuilding Sales Engineering, Young Kyu Ahn stated that “We are happy to collaborate with DNV in this important design development and believe this AiP award demonstrates SHI’s readiness for the new LCO2 shipping market that is coming from global decarbonization demands.”

DNV’s regional manager Maritime Korea & Japan, Vidar Dolonen said that the growing markets for carbon dioxide carriers will contribute to global emissions reduction strategies and DNV will accompany SHI’s decarbonization journey with their expertise.
