LNG Industry,


GTT has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Corp. Ltd. This contract relates to two dual purpose vessels capable of operating as efficient LNG Carriers and FSRUs.

The vessels will be built in Shanghai, for the owner Dynagas, and their delivery is due in 2021.

GTT will design the LNG tanks of both units, each representing a capacity of 174 000 m3. The membrane cryogenic containment system NO96 GW, with glass wool insulation, will be used for the LNG storage on board. Currently, 14 vessels in operation and 42 on order use this technology.

“We are pleased to once again accompany the ship-owner Dynagas in its continued development in the LNG industry and to contribute to the very first FSRUs built by our Chinese partner Hudong-Zhonghua. This new order highlights the trusting relationships GTT maintains with this shipyard, which is part of the biggest shipbuilding group in China”, declared Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT.
