GTT receives order from DSME for five ice breaking LNGCs for Yamal trade


Paris – 28 January  2015. GTT, world leader in the design of membrane containment systems for the maritime transportation and storage of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) announces an order for five large Arctic Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers (LNGCs).  The five ships for Yamal Trade will be built by the Korean shipbuilder DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering).

These five ARC 7 LNGCs are expected to be delivered between 2017 and 2019 and will be built with the innovative NO96-GW technology, which allows an optimized boil-off rate of LNG cargo.

GTT recorded ten similar orders for ice breaking LNGCs in 2014.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT commented: “The harsh Arctic conditions make transporting natural gas a huge challenge. GTT is very proud that membrane containment solutions were chosen for these new generation vessels”.
