French LNG containment specialist GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) has announced that it has received an order from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) concerning the tank design of a new 174 000 m3 liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier on behalf of a European shipowner.

The Paris-based engineering company said that the delivery of the ship is planned during the first half of 2021.

GTT’s membrane containment system Mark III Flex has been selected for the design of the tanks. The name of the ship-owner remains confidential at this stage.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT declared: “We are very pleased to pursue our partnership of excellence with Samsung Heavy Industries through this new order.”

Last week GTT  received an order from an unnamed 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.
