GTT to design the tanks of eight new LNG carriers

Published by
LNG Industry,

In December 2019, GTT received multiple orders from Korean shipyards Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) for the equipment for eight new LNG carriers.

Each new vessel will offer a capacity of 174 000 m3 and will be fitted with the Mark III Flex technology.

Four of these LNG carriers will be built by HHI: two on behalf of an Asian ship-owner and two on behalf of a European ship-owner. The other four carriers will be built by HSHI on behalf of another European ship-owner.

The deliveries are expected during 2H22.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, stated: “These eight last orders confirm the dynamism of the market observed throughout this year. This brings the number of LNG carrier orders obtained in 2019 to 57, which is a record year for GTT and illustrates the partnership of excellence that we have with the shipyards of the Hyundai Group.”
