GTT and WISON sign a Technical Assistance and License Agreement for the construction of membrane tank systems
GTT has signed a Technical Assistance and License Agreement (TALA) with the Chinese shipyard WISON Offshore & Marine (WOM) for the equipment of Floating Liquefied Natural Gas units (FLNG), Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRU), Floating Storage Regasification Power units (FSRP) and LNG Carriers, using GTT membrane solutions, the company said in its release.
WOM is a pioneer in floating LNG in China, being the first in the world to deliver barge-based FLNG and FSRU on a turn-key basis. WOM obtained its GTT license after having successfully completed a qualification process that began earlier this year, including the construction of Mark III technology Mock-up.
This agreement will enable both partners to further expand their offer to ship-owners, to target new markets, especially focusing on floating based solutions, and to advance the development of LNG in the global supply chain.
