McDermott International’s CB&I Storage Solutions business has been awarded a study by a natural gas producer to research opportunities to expand current liquid hydrogen storage capacity limits.
CB&I Storage Solutions specializes in field-erected spherical cryogenic hydrogen storage and is currently building the liquid hydrogen sphere for NASA.
“Industry leaders across the energy spectrum recognize that effective, affordable storage solutions are imperative to achieve a sustainably powered future. Hydrogen, like wind and solar, plays a major role in decarbonization and this study aims to unlock even greater potential in this field.”Samik Mukherjee, McDermott’s senior vice president for Projects.
“In 1960, we built the first liquid hydrogen sphere with the capacity to store 170 cubic meters. Over the last sixty years, we have expanded that threshold by about 30-fold to 5,000 cubic meters. And we will continue to advance our technology and apply our expertise to further refine our portfolio of storage solutions to meet our customers’ future demands.”Cesar Canals, senior vice president of CB&I Storage Solutions.
McDermott has a strong track record in hydrogen production and storage projects and is a proud supporting member of the Hydrogen Council.
