The Korea Institute of Energy Technology (KENTECH) has obtained approval in principle (AiP) from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) for the design of a new marine hydrogen production and liquefaction plant, which has been jointly developed with Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE).

ABS is a world-class ship and offshore installation certification body. An AiP certificate award ceremony was held at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), the world’s largest conference held in Houston on May 2 (local time), attended by officials from KENTECH, KSOE and ABS.

The technology jointly developed by KENTECH and KSOE is a new concept offshore plant that can produce hydrogen using water electrolysis technology on a coastal shore, liquefy and store the produced hydrogen and spray to provide it to a customer.

KENTECH and KSOE plan to continue cooperation in areas such as feasibility studies and R&D for additional hydrogen technology concepts, commercialization of R&D results, and presentations at renowned academic meetings overseas. .
