Last month, GTT received an order from Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) for the tank design of three new LNGCs on behalf COSCO Shipping.
Each vessel will have a capacity of 174,000 cu m. GTT will design the vessels’ tanks, which will be fitted with the NO96 L03+ membrane containment system.
The vessels’ deliveries are planned for between the fourth quarter of 2022 and the second quarter of 2023.
Also in the same month, GTT signed a global technical services agreement (TSA) with Knutsen OAS Shipping.
This new agreement will cover a fleet of 17 LNGCs by 2022 (12 currently in service and five under construction), all equipped with Mark III Flex or NO96 containment technologies.
GTT will support Knutsen with the vessels’ maintenance and operations, including on-site technical assistance for inspection, maintenance, repairs, operations and engineering services.
Knutsen will also benefit from access to the patented HEARS emergency hotline, which enables shipowners and their crews to contact GTT experts 24/7 to respond to operational issues.
