Description: There is an increased commitment from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions from shipping through the use of gases or low-flashpoint fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia, methane, methanol, or their e-fuel variants produced from non-fossil fuel sources. These fuels are expected to become more widely adopted by the marine industry as a substitute for conventional residual or distillate marine fuels. In response to the IMO GHG reduction targets, the marine industry has increased its interest in the use and transport of hydrogen due to its properties as a zero- emission fuel and the ability to produce hydrogen from renewable and sustainable sources. This document addresses the carriage of liquefied hydrogen in bulk.
The ABS criteria to be applied to liquefied gas carriers are detailed in Part 5C, Chapter 8 of the ABS Rules for Building and Classing Marine Vessels (Marine Vessel Rules), which incorporates the IMO Resolution MSC.370(93) Amendments to the International Code for the Construction and Equipment of Ships Carrying Liquefied Gases in Bulk (IGC Code).
