GTT announces that it has received, in March 2022, an order from its partner the Chinese shipyard Jiangnan for the cargo containment and cargo handling systems design of two large capacity LNG carriers.

As part of this order, GTT will provide the design and associated engineering services for the vessel’s tanks, which will each offer a capacity of 175,000 m3. The tanks will be fitted with the GTT Mark III Flex membrane containment system, a technology developed by GTT.

The vessels are scheduled for delivery in the first and second quarters of 2025.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: "We are very pleased to accompany Jiangnan in a new phase of our collaboration, as these vessels are the first large LNG carriers to be built by Jiangnan shipyard. We will do whatever it takes to make this cooperation a great success."
