GTT receives order from DSME for six new LNGCs


Paris – 10 February 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 six LNGCs (Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers) which will be built by the South Korean shipbuilder DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering).

These six LNGCs, for a European owner, are expected to be delivered between 2018 and 2019. They will be built with the innovative NO96-GW technology which allows an optimized boil-off rate of cargo LNG.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT commented: “The choice made for these buildings illustrates the trust given to GTT membrane technology. With this new order, 2015 is off to a very good start”.
