Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has initiated a feasibility study with France’s TotalEnergies for development of a new series of vessels designed to transport liquefied CO2 (LCO2).

Bruno Seilhan, Vice President for CO2 Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) at TotalEnergies, said the vessels in the series will accommodate the expected surge in transported CO2 volumes for geological storage as a result of the the acceleration in net zero carbon targets worldwide.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding had earlier confirmed its plans to commercialise the design of the LCO2 carrier by 2025.
