French liquefied natural gas (LNG) containment system specialist Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has received an order from an Asian shipyard concerning the tank design of two new LNG carriers.

GTT’s membrane containment system NO96 GW has been selected for the design of the tanks, said a press release from the company.

The vessels’ delivery is expected for Q4 2020 and Q1 of 2021 respectively, it said.

The ship-owner’s and shipyard's names remain confidential.

Two weeks ago, GTT  received an order from the Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) concerning the tank design of two new 174,000 m3 LNG carriers on behalf of a European ship-owner.

It also selected GTT’s membrane containment system NO96 GW for the design of the tanks. The delivery of the ships is planned for the first semester of 2021.
