The basic concept of a liquefied CO2 carrier is studied from the aspect of the physical properties of liquefied CO2, and environmental control of the cargo tank and hold space, design and arrangement of cargo tanks, dimensional study of hull form, damage stability and related subjects. The authors proposed a 49,000 m3 vessel with 6 spherical tanks of 9% nickel steel, stored in the hold. The study assumes that the tank wall has a thickness of around 40 mm satisfying the Charpy value requirement and a cargo pressure of 700 kilopascals. Studies for damage stability showed the consideration of high density of the cargo would be a key factor for the hull arrangement. The paper shows a selection of the extensive hull configurations including some new concepts.
