GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) has received an order for two LNG carriers, which add to the company’s strong Q3 2014 order book.
The LNGCs will be built by the Korean shipbuilder DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering). The vessels are expected to be delivered between 2017 and 2018.
The carriers will be built with the innovative NO 96 GW membrane technology, which allows an optimised daily boil-off rate of cargo LNG, and helps to reduce fuel costs.
These vessels will be operated by BW Group, a Norwegian owner with a long history of operating GTT-designed LNG carriers.
Commenting on this latest order, Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT said: "We are very happy to receive this new order. It shows our long partnership with DSME, which is particularly involved in the promotion of NO 96 membrane systems; as well as BW, who already operates many ships equipped with GTT technologies."
