Paris - 23 January 2015. GTT, world leader in the design of membrane containment systems for the maritime transportation and storage of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), announces an order for four large LNGCs (Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers). The four ships will be built by the Korean shipbuilder DSME (Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering).
These four LNGCs for Maran Gas are expected to be delivered between 2017 and 2019 and will be built with the innovative NO96-GW technology, which allows an optimized boil-off rate of cargo LNG.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT commented: "We are very pleased that these new buildings for Maran Gas integrate GTT membrane technology. This order also reinforces our good relationship with DSME, a long term partner".
