DNV expands Singapore testing lab to meet rising hydrogen demand

Independent energy expert and assurance provider DNV has expanded its Singapore research laboratory with new testing equipment for the safety assessments of hydrogen transport and storage facilities.

As global industry continues its focus on meeting Net Zero targets and developing carbon-neutral strategies, hydrogen is fast becoming one of the most promising energy sources to decarbonise hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy industry, maritime and large-scale transport.

An advantage of hydrogen is that it can be transported through adapted or repurposed infrastructure, eliminating the need to design and build new pipelines.

Increased interest has been expressed by several gas network operators in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region to explore the opportunities in hydrogen transport.

An operator in India is working with DNV to provide support on the integration of blended hydrogen into gas trunkline assets, while also assisting Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) in a two-year project to explore the potential of blending hydrogen into South Korea’s gas transmission network.
