Storage Solutions Conceptual Design for World's Largest Liquid Hydrogen Sphere Complete
McDermott's CB&I Storage Solutions has recently completed the design of a 40,000 cubic meter liquid hydrogen sphere for a major natural gas producer. The conceptual design will play a vital role in supporting a large-scale hydrogen economy.
Houston/USA – McDermott International has announced that its CB&I Storage Solutions business has completed the design of a 40,000 cubic meter liquid hydrogen sphere as part of a study awarded by a leading natural gas producer earlier this year.
"This study confirms the feasibility of scaling up liquid hydrogen solutions beyond what was previously thought possible and positions us to better serve our customers in this growing industry," said Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President, CB&I Storage Solutions.
Viable storage solutions play a critical role in supporting a large-scale hydrogen economy.
The conceptual design for a double-wall liquid hydrogen sphere with a storage capacity of 40,000 cubic meters is approximately eight times larger than the world's largest liquid hydrogen sphere currently under construction by CB&I Storage Solutions for NASA."This study is just the beginning of achieving what's possible for liquid hydrogen storage," said Samik Mukherjee, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
