GTT to equip four MOL LNG carriers

Published by
LNG Industry,

Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has announced that it has received an order from Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Corp. Ltd to design the tanks of four LNG carriers.

The vessels will be built on behalf of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd (MOL). They will all be equipped with NO96-L03+ technology, and will each have a capacity of 174 000 m3. The first vessel is scheduled for delivery in late 2019.

The N096-L03+ insulation system is an evolution of the NO96 technology, which is featured in more than 200 vessels across the globe. The configuration of the containment system NO96-L03+ guarantees a boil-off rate of 0.1% cargo volume per day.

The Chairman and CEO of GTT, Philippe Berterottière, said: “We are very pleased to further strengthen our relations with our partner Hudong Zhonghua. This is an extraordinary order, a very large and major shipbuilding project to which we are proud to contribute. In addition, the four vessels concerned will be equipped with the technology NO96-L03+, a success for the new GTT technologies recently developed.”
