Engineering firm GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz), which develops containment systems for the transportation and storage of liquefied natural gas (LNG), on Wednesday (26 June) said it has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co., Ltd. for the tank design of five new LNG-fuelled container ships of 15,000 TEU capacity each.
GTT will design the LNG fuel tanks, with a capacity of 14,000 m3 per ship. The Mark III Flex membrane containment system, developed by GTT, has been chosen for its space optimisation allowing a maximum usage of cargo capacity.
The ships will be built on behalf of a European ship-owner and their delivery will be staggered between the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022.
“Less than 18 months after the first order for LNG-fuelled container ships, we are delighted to confirm, with this new order, the interest and effectiveness of our solutions to address the emerging environmental challenges for shipping,” said Philippe Berterottiere, Chairman and CEO of GTT.
