World's first liquefied hydrogen carrier launched in Japan

The Suiso Frontier is a key part of the HySTRA demonstration project, which will see hydrogen shipped 9,000 km from southeast Australia to the Japanese city of Kobe

The world's first liquiefied hydrogen carrier, the Suiso Frontier, which was launched on December 11 in Kobe, Japan. Its hydrogen tank is yet to be installed, hence the large octagonal 'hole' seen here.
