GTT notified by SHI for the tank design of two new LNG Carriers

GTT has received a new order from the Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), concerning the tank design of two 174,000 m3 LNGCs, on behalf of a European ship owner.

The LNG tanks of both units will be fitted with the Mark III Flex+ membrane containment system developed by GTT, offering a guaranteed boil-off rate of 0.07% of tank volume/day. The delivery of the vessels is planned during the second semester of 2020.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: “We are proud of the confidence granted by SHI and the success encountered by our latest Mark III technology evolution.”
