KSOE designed nuclear powered hydrogen production barge

Seoul – Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) is continued to pursue its interest in nuclear power. Seen as a technology that could provide a means of addressing the need for power in remote areas and reducing carbon emissions, efforts are underway to develop small modular nuclear reactors for a variety of applications including power barges. KSOE is looking to use the power source as part of a floating production unit for alternative fuel.
The parent of South Korea’s largest shipbuilder revealed it has developed a barge concept similar to the concept used in offshore energy during a presentation last Friday, March 10, in South Korea according to a report in today’s issue of BusinessKorea. KSOE is reported to be promoting the basic design for a production barge power multiple modular reactions with a maximum capacity of up to 240 MW. In its first design, KSOE proposes using four sets of 60 MW small modular reactors according to the report.
The reactors would be placed in a floating facility and used to power carbon-free fuel production such as hydrogen. Other have also looked at the idea of floating hydrogen production but they are linking their concepts to power from wind farms or other sources. KSOE reportedly views the use of the reactions as a means to produce hydrogen at a low cost.
