Description: A safety comparison was undertaken between LNG and liquefied hydrogen (LH2). It was concluded
that due to the large quantities of stored energy, both these fuels potentially present a significant
hazard, and require careful engineering controls. The differences in safety between the fuels is
minimal, with hydrogen probably being safer if stored outdoors, and LNG probably safer if stored
indoors.
It was concluded that hydrogen is a viable fuel, with liquefied hydrogen being the preferred
storage method. At present, there is insufficient liquefied hydrogen production available in
Europe, and while this will change in the long-term, in the short-term, gaseous hydrogen is likely
to be the most prevalent. This view was reinforced when it was confirmed that the Orkney Islands
are likely to be receiving a gaseous hydrogen ferry for deployment in the near future.
Gaseous hydrogen was therefore taken forwards for consideration in this bunkering system
feasibility study.
It was concluded what whilst the basic components for a bunkering systems are set, their
configuration will change depending on the specifics of each customer. Thus, an approach was
taken to design a modular and scalable system that could be readily adapted. The details of each
module are provided.
