The delivery of these vessels is scheduled between the second half of 2020 and the first half of 2021.

Jiangnan Shipyard (Group) Co, Ltd. has entrusted Gabadi, an outfitter licensed by GTT, with the installation of the LNG membrane containment system Mark III, developed by GTT.

The vessel has departed for sea trials and then will go for gas trials before being delivered to CMA CGM.
