Since 1988 work has been in progress in Germany on the development of tankers for the carriage of liquid hydrogen in large quantities. As a part of a current project, a 41-MW gas turbine propulsion unit has been designed for a SWATH tanker. Along with its features such as steam injection, pre-cooling of combustion air and condensation out of the exhaust gases of the water required for producing steam, this unit is described in this article. Some background is also provided regarding the production and transport of liquid hydrogen.
