GTT has received an order from its partner the Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries for the tank design of eight new LNG carriers on behalf of a European shipowner.
GlobalData predicts that China will lead the global LNG regasification capacity additions between 2022 and 2026, contributing 26% of the total LNG liquefaction capacity additions.
The order comes from its Korean partner shipyards, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries.
The agreement is for the supply of fuel for Brittany Ferries’ two new-build, LNG-fuelled hybrid Ro-Pax vessels that will operate between England and France from 2025.
The equipment will be used for an LNG-powered RoRo vessel being built by Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft for the Tasmanian-based Australian shipping company, SeaRoad.
