GTT notified by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding for the tank design of an LNG bunker vessel for MOL
GTT has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua for the tank design of an LNG bunker vessel on behalf of the Japanese ship-owner Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd. (MOL), the company said in its release.
GTT will design the tanks of the vessel, which will be fitted with the Mark III membrane containment system, a technology developed by GTT. The vessel will offer a total cargo tank capacity of 18,600 m3. The unit will be operated by the ship-owner MOL and chartered by Total. Its delivery is planned during the fourth quarter of 2021.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: “We are pleased to receive this order from our long-term partners. This new LNG bunker vessel project demonstrates strengthened interest from ship-owners for the use of GNL as marine fuel and contributes to the development of the associated supply chain.”
