2019-06-26

Paris – June 26th 2019. GTT has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co., Ltd. for the tank design of 5 new LNG-fuelled container ships of 15,000 TEU capacity each. 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.

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.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: “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.”
