Tokyo - Japan’s Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is set to build a liquefied carbon dioxide (LCO2) carrier and is also studying an ammonia floating regasification and storage unit (FSRU) concept in a concerted bid to expand is energy transition portfolio. The Yokohama-based unit of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries confirmed this week it had signed a deal with compatriot Sanyu Kisen to build, what it claims will be, the world’s first demonstration test ship to carry liquefied carbon dioxide exclusively for emerging carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects.

The project is being built in conjunction with Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization’s (NEDO) related work in CCUS research and development. The Engineering Advancement Association of Japan (ENAA) will charter the vessel from Sanyu Kisen in a bid to accelerate research and development of LCO2 transportation technology and reduce the cost of CCUS technology.
