GTT To Design Tanks For COSCO LNG Tanker Trio
French GTT has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding for the tank design for three new LNG carriers.
The carriers will be delivered to the Chinese ship-owner COSCO Shipping.
Each vessel will offer a capacity of 174,000 m3. GTT will design the tanks of the vessels, which will be fitted with the NO96 L03+ membrane containment system, a technology developed by GTT.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: “We are pleased to continue our long-term partnership with Hudong-Zhonghua and COSCO Shipping through this new LNGC order.”
The delivery of the vessels is planned between the fourth quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2023.
