Engineering firm GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz), which develops containment systems for the transportation and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG), on Thursday (6 February) said it has clinched a service package agreement with maritime transport and logistics firm CMA CGM Group.
The service package is for the commissioning, operation and maintenance of CMA CGM’s future 23,000 TFE (Twenty Foot Equivalent) LNG-powered container ships equipped with GTT membrane containment technologies.
The vessels, each equipped with an 18,600 m3 LNG bunker tank, are the largest container ships in the world to use LNG as fuel, notes GTT.
The GTT service package includes the training of crews of the CMA CGM fleet through the provision of the G-Sim® training simulator, specially adapted to replicate the LNG operations of CMA CGM vessels.
GTT will also provide on board technical assistance during the commissioning of LNG tanks and during the first bunkering operations, amongst other services.
The GTT services portfolio facilitates ship-owners’ entry into the world of LNG, a clean fuel, says Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT.
“We are constantly expanding our range of services to meet the new expectations of ship-owners and are therefore very pleased to be able to support CMA CGM in the commissioning, operation and maintenance of its LNG powered vessels,” he states.
