GTT has announced that it has signed a technical assistance and license agreement (TALA) with WISON Offshore & Marine (WOM) for the equipment of floating LNG (FLNG) units, floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs), floating storage regasification power units (FSRPs) and LNG carriers, using GTT membrane solutions.

WOM is a pioneer in FLNG in China, being the first in the world to deliver barge-based FLNG units and FSRUs on a turnkey basis. According to the statement, WOM obtained its GTT license after having successfully completed a qualification process that commenced earlier this year, including the construction of Mark III technology Mock-up.

GTT claims that this agreement will allow both partners to further expand their offer to shipowners, to target new markets, especially focusing on floating-based solutions, and to advance the development of LNG in the global supply chain.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “We are pleased to count WISON among our new-building partners. We are very interested in developing and building together new LNG infrastructures which can provide innovative natural gas value chain solutions.”

An Wenxin, President and Chief Operating Officer of WISON Offshore & Marine, added: “We are very proud to be licensed by GTT for Membrane technologies. This will allow us to offer more actively LNG solutions with GTT’s technologies in China, which is what the market is asking for.”
