McDermott awarded liquid hydrogen storage study

McDermott International’s 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.

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. 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 supporting member of the Hydrogen Council. CB&I Storage Solutions is the world’s leading designer and builder of storage facilities, tanks and terminals.

I don't get the sudden deluge of hydrogen news is. It's very hard to conceive that cryogenic hydrogen is being considered for any kind of broad storage deployment. F'rinstance the relative benefit of cryogenic hydrogen vs metal hydrides was pretty well demonstrated between Ivy Mike and Castle Bravo in the early 50's.
