GTT Wins Tank Design Order of a New LNG Carrier
French specialist in liquified natural gas (LNG) containment systems Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has received a new order notification from a Korean shipyard for the tank design of a new 174,000 m3 LNG carrier (LNGC), to be built on behalf of a European ship-owner.
The vessel’s delivery is expected in Q1 2021. The ship-owner’s and shipyard's names are confidential.
The LNG tanks of the vessel will be equipped with the proven Mark III Flex containment system developed by GTT.
Last week, GTT received an order from the South Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) for the tank design of two new 173,400 m3 LNG carriers (LNGC).
These units will be built on behalf of a European ship-owner. The tanks will be fitted with the NO96 GW technology and the vessels’ delivery is expected by end of 2020.
