An online conference focusing on the latest developments
in the 'LNG as a marine fuel' sector
In November 2017, CMA CGM was the first ship owner to decide to select LNG as the fuel for its future series of nine ultra large container vessels. Giving up heavy fuel oil which is the current industry standard to LNG is a technological breakthrough contributing to environmental protection. Storing enough LNG on board a giant container vessel to make it able to sail and return from North Europe to China is the challenge faced by GTT, the world leader of LNG containment system for marine applications. A Mark III LNG membrane tank is located below accommodation block with a capacity of 18 600 cbm on 23K TEU container vessels that will be delivered from first half of 2020.
