Gas supply chain risk management firm Bureau Veritas Tuesday issued an Approval in Principle (AiP) for a 6,500 cubic metre (m3) liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker barge design jointly developed by Korean shipyard DSEC and LNG containment sytems engineering firm GTT (pictured).
AiPs for two new GTT-developed containment systems: the Mark III Flex+, an evolution of the Mark III® but with a lower boil-off rate (BOR) and the GTT MARS™, a containment system developed for LPG carriers that is adaptable to any size of tank or ship were issued at the same time.
“These approvals are helping GTT expand the range and depth of their technologies,” says Matthieu de Tugny, COO, Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore.
“The increasing sophistication of containment systems and expansion of their application – as in CMA CGM’s breakthrough order for large containerships with membrane tanks – is driving the adoption and development of gas transportation and LNG as a marine fuel as well supporting the marine gas trades.”
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO, GTT was “very pleased” with the developments.
“We are very pleased to be granted these approvals by Bureau Veritas with whom GTT has a very close partnership for decades,” says Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO, GTT.
“We have demonstrated the reliability of our latest developments and their ability to meet the owners’ requirements.
“I believe these new systems and designs will help the shipping industry to move forward and reduce the ecological footprint.”
