Engineering firm GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz), which develops containment systems for the transportation and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG), on Wednesday (3 June) said it has completed construction of the first LNG bunker fuel tank for CMA CGM newbuildings through licensed partner Chinese shipyard Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co., Ltd.
The Chinese shipyard is in charge of building four LNG-fuelled container ships with a capacity of 23,000 TEU each for the French ship-owner CMA CGM.
The delivery of these vessels is scheduled between the second half of 2020 and the first half of 2021, it said.
Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co, Ltd. has entrusted Gabadi, an outfitter similarly licensed by GTT, with the installation of the 18,600 m3 Mark III LNG membrane containment system on the first container ship.
The vessel has departed for sea trials and then will go for gas trials before being delivered to CMA CGM.
