GTT to deliver Chengda tanks

French LNG specialist GTT is to design two very large Membrane Full Containment LNG storage tanks for China Chengda Engineering as part of a cooperation agreement related to the Tianjin Nangang LNG terminal. The order includes two membrane storage tanks, each with a net capacity of 220,000 cubci metres and fitted with GST technology. “This order for two more LNG storage tanks further confirms that GTT's Membrane full containment technology is becoming a reference solution for LNG land storage tanks due to its efficiency, competitiveness, safety and low environmental footprint,” Philippe Berterottière, CEO of GTT, said.

Hudong-Zhonghua finalises Marseille-Fos bunker vessel

The first LNG bunker vessel to be deployed in a French homeport has been launched in China, following completion of construction at Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard. The vessel is being built on behalf of joint venture partners TotalEnergies Marine Fuels and Mitsui O.S.K.

HAM opens Navalmanzano LLNG station

HAM Group has opened a new LNG fuelling station in Segovia, Spain. The BENITO gas station was installed in one day in Navalmanzano and features integrated dispenser and payment terminal connected to a tank with capacity for 80 cubic metres of LNG. The station allows heavy vehicles and all types of trucks to refuel with LNG. “It keeps the liquid subcooled and adapts immediately to the optimal temperature of the different brands: Iveco, Scania or Volvo, allowing fast and safe refuelling with an innovative nozzle, designed by HAM, with a “nofrost” system and a double anchoring and closing system, in order to avoid leaks, liquid losses and facilitate its disconnection without emitting gas into the air,” a spokesperson for the firm said.
