GTT Receives Orders For Tank Design Of Two New LNGCs From HSHI & DSME
GTT has received orders from its partners the Korean shipyards Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) for the tank design of two new LNGCs, at the end of June.
GTT will design the tanks of the vessels which will each offer a cargo capacity of 174,000 m3.
The LNGC built by HSHI, on behalf of a Liberia ship-owner, will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane technology and the LNGC built by DSME, on behalf of an Asian ship-owner, will be fitted with the NO96 GW membrane containment system. This last LNGC’s order replaces the order for the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) with a capacity of 263,000 m3, announced in June 2020 and scheduled for delivery in 2023.
The vessels will be delivered at the end of 2023.
