GTT has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua for the tank design of an LNG bunker vessel on behalf of the Japanese ship-owner Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd. (MOL).

GTT will design the tanks of the vessel, which will be fitted with the Mark III membrane containment system, a technology developed by GTT. The vessel will offer a total cargo tank capacity of 18,600 m3. The unit will be operated by the ship-owner MOL and chartered by Total. Its delivery is planned during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: “We are pleased to receive this order from our long-term partners. This new LNG bunker vessel project demonstrates strengthened interest from ship-owners for the use of GNL as marine fuel and contributes to the development of the associated supply chain.”
