GTT obtains Approval in Principle from Bureau Veritas for the Mark III Flex technology on ice-breaking LNG carriers

2019-09-19

GTT has obtained Approval in Principle (AiP) for its Mark III Flex containment system evolution for ice breaking LNG carriers from the Classification Society Bureau Veritas. This containment system offers a daily boil-off rate of 0.085% of tank volume.

The formal AiP has been delivered at a ceremony on the Bureau Veritas exhibition stand during Gastech 2019 in Houston.

The approval was based on vibration and acceleration tests performed to simulate the behavior of the containment system when an LNG carrier is involved in ice-breaking operations.

GTT is pleased to be granted this approval by Bureau Veritas and proud to have demonstrated the reliability of its technologies in Arctic conditions.
