GTT technology has been chosen by STX France to equip PEGASIS, the new environmental vessel ordered by Brittany Ferries.
 
GTT membrane technology has been selected by STX France to fit out PEGASIS (Power Efficient GAS Innovative Ship), the new environmental ferry propelled with LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), ordered by Brittany Ferries.
 
This innovative vessel will use GTT Mark III insulation system and will be built in Saint-Nazaire, in France. It should be delivered by the end of 2016.
 
In addition, GTT has also been selected to design the tanks of three other Brittany Ferries ships to be converted to LNG propulsion.
 
This order has arrived within the context of new European regulations, relating to sulphur oxide emissions, which strongly incites ship-owners to consider using less polluting fuels. With this prospect, propulsion with LNG represents one of the most competitive methods in order to respect the objectives of reducing emissions imposed by these new regulations.
 
Moreover, the membrane technology developed by GTT for LNG propulsion offers the ship-owners many advantages of optimization of space and cost.
