MORE GTT ORDERS FOR LNG CARRIER CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS

Friday, January 10, 2020 

GTT of France has recently received several orders from Korean shipyards Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) for tank equipment of eight new LNG Carriers (LNGC).

Each vessel will offer a capacity of 174,000 m3 and will be fitted with the Mark III Flex technology.

Four of these LNGCs will be built by HHI: two on behalf of an Asian ship-owner and two on behalf of a European ship-owner. The others four LNGCs will be built by HSHI on behalf of another European ship-owner. The deliveries are expected during the second half of 2022.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “These eight last orders confirm the dynamism of the market observed throughout this year. This brings the number of LNGC orders obtained in 2019 to 57, which is a record year for GTT and illustrates the partnership of excellence that we have with the shipyards of the Hyundai Group.”
