ABS awarded approval in principle (AIP) to Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (SHI) for its design of a midship section and cargo tank for a 96K very large ammonia carrier. Representatives from both companies met at Posidonia 2024 for the AIP presentation.

Among the largest in the world, the ammonia carrier design is the result of a joint development project that included the production of a 3D structural cargo hold model from SHI for review by ABS.

ABS completed structural analysis and design reviews based on class and statutory requirements.

“The utilization of ammonia is anticipated to increase as industries move toward more sustainable energy sources, and shipping will have a critical role to play. By working with innovative clients like SHI on new carrier designs, ABS is playing an important part in the energy transition by supporting the safe and efficient transport of ammonia at sea,” said Vassilios Kroustallis, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Business Development.
