Europe Technologies Group has announced that it has signed a memorandum of agreement with Shipbuilding & Repair Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago to repair LNG carrier membrane containment systems.
The agreement - signed in Nantes, France - will provide both project management and skilled personnel in organising the working party with the ship-owner, the shipyard, the technology owner, the classification company and other service providers, to achieve the best on-time quality cargo containment system solutions required by LNG carrier owners.
