ABS Issues AIP to Very Large Ammonia Carrier Design from Samsung Heavy Industries

ABS Awards AIP to Samsung Heavy Industries for 96K Ammonia Carrier Design

(ATHENS) ABS has awarded an Approval in Principle (AIP) to Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (SHI) for their design of a midship section and cargo tank for a 96K very large ammonia carrier. Representatives from ABS and SHI met at Posidonia 2024 for the AIP presentation.

This ammonia carrier design, one of the largest in the world, is the outcome of a joint development project. SHI produced a 3D structural cargo hold model, which ABS reviewed. ABS conducted 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.

“The development of the ammonia carrier is a significant step towards realizing our vision for a sustainable future. We will continue to pursue innovation to accelerate the advent of a carbon-free era and set the standard for future energy transportation,” said Heaki Jang, Executive Vice President and CTO of Samsung Heavy Industries.

ABS is the world’s premier classification society for gas carriers, with over 50 years of experience building and classifying gas carriers of every type and size. Learn more here.
