France-based GTT said it signed in June a global technical services agreement (TSA) with the Norwegian shipowner Knutsen OAS Shipping AS. This new agreement covers a fleet of 17 vessels by 2022, including 12 currently in service and five under construction, all equipped with Mark III Flex or NO96 technologies, developed by GTT.

GTT will support Knutsen with the maintenance and operation of the vessels. This agreement includes GTT on-site technical assistance for inspection, maintenance, repairs, operations, and engineering services.

Knutsen will also have access to the HEARS1 emergency hotline, which enables shipowners and their crews to contact GTT’s experts 24/7 to respond to operational issues.

Knutsen OAS Shipping handles the commercial and technical management/operation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers and the product/chemical tankers within the Knutsen Group.
