H2 Transport by Ship and Pipelines
SP2 will pave the way for new, innovative and safe systems for transport of H2. New technologies for maritime energy systems and ship designs are required to enable large-scale LH2 distribution. Based upon the technology development, market characteristics and underlying infrastructure, optimal logistics systems for H2 distribution and storage will be proposed and evaluated. For pipeline transport of H2-gas, structural integrity challenges will be handled by materials testing, development of predictive engineering tools and by giving input to existing and new standards for materials and design.
