Mitsui OSK Lines and Kawaskai Heavy Industries are investigating the potential to ship liquid hydrogen (LH2) to Singapore to power energy-hungry data centres.

The project will study the technical and commercial viability of a LH2 supply chain, including the feasibility of having a production and liquefaction plant and export terminal at the exporting country.

It will also look at transportation via tankers, as well as an import terminal, storage units and regasification facilities in Singapore.
