GTT LNG Brick®: fuel tank for LNG fuelled vessels

With the rise in the use of LNG as a fuel, the marine industry requires new cryogenic storage solutions which are both compact and easy to install. To meet this demand, GTT has developed the LNG Brick® technology which has successfully completed a test campaign in early March 2018.

The solution, which incorporates our proven Mark III membrane system and is delivered as a block ready to be installed into the ship structure, provides LNG tank solutions for capacities below 3000 cbm. The construction of the LNG Brick® tank is carried out at a dedicated site, outside the shipbuilder’s premises, and is transported to the yard and installed into an LNG-propelled vessel at the appropriate time.

This technology also addresses many other concerns, such as the management of boil-off for small volumes, thanks to its ability to maintain a higher pressure than traditional membrane tanks. In addition, LNG Brick® units, like all membrane tanks, can be customised thanks to its parallelepiped shape to suit the space available, thereby offering a more space-efficient solution than Type C tanks.

GTT’s LNG Brick® technology is an innovative solution that meets market requirements both economical and environmental.
