2014-10-09

Paris – October 9th, 2014. GTT,  world leader in the design of membrane containment systems for the maritime transportation and storage of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) received an order for two LNGCs (Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers) which add to the already strong third quarter 2014 order book, and which will be built by the Korean shipbuilder DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering).

These vessels are expected to be delivered between 2017 and 2018.

They will be built with the innovative NO 96 GW membrane technology, which allows an optimized daily boil-off rate of cargo LNG, and helps to save fuel cost during journeys.

These vessels will be operated by BW Group, a Norwegian owner with a long history of operating GTT-designed LNG carriers.

Commenting on this latest order, Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT declared, “We are very happy to receive this new order. It shows our long partnership with DSME, which is particularly involved in the promotion of NO 96 membrane systems; as well as BW, who already operates many ships equipped with GTT technologies.”
