GTT’s membrane containment system Mark III Flex+ has been selected for the design of the tanks and the delivery of the ship is planned during Q3 2021.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT declared: “We are very pleased that Minerva increases its presence in the LNG world through this new order for our Mark III Flex+ technology. It demonstrates the attractiveness, for the LNG Industry players, of this containment system which offers the lowest level of Boil-Off Rate currently on the market."
