Livanos-controlled GasLog is to work with partners to develop an onboard CO2 capture and storage system (OCCS) for a new LNG carrier. The Greek owner will work closely with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) where the company currently has four LNG carriers on order, due for delivery sequentially from the first half of 2024.
Classifications society, ABS, will focus on rules and regulations for the OCCS development, providing technical guidance. It will also undertake a series of risk assessments and supervise the assurance procedure for the final ‘approval in principle’ award.
GasLog COO, Kostas Karathanos, commented: “Strong collaborations with industry leaders such as DSME and ABS is a key enabler to decarbonising shipping. At GasLog we firmly believe that onboard carbon capture will become one of the main methods to reduce emissions from shipping and contribute to keeping global temperature increase to 1.5°C.”
