GTT has received two order notifications from the South Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), for the design of the tanks of four new 174,000 m3 LNG carriers. These orders, involving two units each, will be built on behalf of two European ship-owners, whose names remain confidential at this stage.
The four units will be equipped with the NO96 GW membrane containment system. The deliveries are expected by the end of 2020 for the first order and early 2021 for the second one.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT declared: “We entertain, with DSME, a privileged and long-lasting relationship. We are pleased to bring, once more, our technology and expertise to such a project.”
