 GTT has received an order from a South Korean shipyard regarding the design of the LNG tanks of 3 new LNG carriers. The deliveries are due in the first semester of 2020.

 
GTT will design the LNG tanks of the units, each having a capacity of 174,000 m3. The tanks will be equipped with the membrane containment system Mark III Flex, a sea-proven technology developed by GTT. 
 
This insulation system guarantees a Boil-Off Rate of 0.085%V/day. It has already been used to equip 48 vessels in service today.
 
GTT has recently announced they have signed a 5-year Master Service Agreement with Chevron Transport Corporation Ltd. under which GTT will support Chevron’s maintenance and operation of 10 LNGCs equipped with GTT’s Mark III and NO96 technologies.
