HOUSTON — McDermott International, Ltd today announced that its CB&I Storage Solutions business has been awarded a study by a leading natural gas producer to research opportunities to expand current liquid hydrogen storage capacity limits.
“Industry leaders across the energy spectrum recognize that effective, affordable storage solutions are imperative to achieve a sustainably powered future,” said Samik Mukherjee, McDermott’s Group Senior Vice President for Projects. “Hydrogen, like wind and solar, plays a major role in decarbonization and this study aims to unlock even greater potential in this field.”
CB&I Storage Solutions specializes in field-erected spherical cryogenic hydrogen storage and is currently building the world’s largest liquid hydrogen sphere for NASA.
“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,” said Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I Storage Solutions. “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.”
