This paper presents the concept and design of a tanker powered by, and carrying, liquid hydrogen (LH2). Beyond the realization of a complete reduction in carbon emissions, the concept is closely related to the authors’ proposal for a rethinking of ship operation with a substitution of Just-in-Time (JIT) by Warehouse-in-Transit (WIT). Ways to fund a LH2 tanker is also reviewed and suggested.
