Keppel partners GTT on LNG solutions

19 Sep 2018

Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) will partner Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) to jointly market liquefied natural gas solutions which will leverage on GTT’s membrane containment systems and Keppel’s shipyard expertise, the companies announced earlier this week.

“GTT’s technologies make it possible to build LNG carriers to meet the demand of supplying LNG along coasts and up rivers to island nations. By adopting our membrane technologies, Keppel O&M will be able to design optimised ships in terms of capacity and size and minimise the draught.”  GTT’s chairman and CEO Philippe Berterottière said.

GTT systems have become the technology of choice for new LNG carrier orders and offshore applications. More than 70% of the world’s LNG carrier fleet currently in service are equipped with GTT membrane technologies, the French company said.

Keppel O&M’s network of global yards will be able to offer GTT’s LNG systems in the design, construction and maintenance of LNG carriers, LNG Bunker vessels, LNG-fuelled vessels, and floating storage and regasification units.

Since completing its first LNG carrier repair in 1990, Keppel O&M has developed a wealth of experience in cryogenics, and developed a suite of solutions across the LNG value chain. It has delivered the world’s first converted FLNG, three FSRU conversions, two newbuild LNG-fuelled vessels, and is building two LNG carriers, one LNG-fuelled vessel, and Southeast Asia’s first LNG bunkering vessel.
