GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) has received an order from South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries to design the tanks of a new 174,000 cbm LNG carrier on behalf of Greek ship-owner Thenamaris. The vessel’s delivery is scheduled in September 2020.

These tanks will be equipped with the Mark III Flex membrane containment system. This insulation system benefits from a significant track record.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT declared: “This new order reinforces our long-term partnership with Hyundai Heavy Industries, with whom we have managed more than 50 new builds. We are also very pleased to accompany, once more, Thenamaris on its vessels projects.”

GTT is an engineering company expert in containment systems with cryogenic membranes used to transport and store liquefied gas, in particular LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas).

For over 50 years, GTT has been maintaining reliable relationships with all stakeholders of the gas industry (shipyards, shipowners, gas companies, terminal operators, classification societies). The company designs and provides technologies which combine operational efficiency and safety, to equip LNG carriers, floating terminals, and multi-gas carriers.

GTT also develops solutions dedicated to land storage and to the use of LNG as fuel for the vessel propulsion, as well as a full range of services.
