GTT bags new LNG tank gig from HD Hyundai Heavy

French LNG containment giant GTT has won a new order from South Korea’s HD Hyundai Heavy Industries to design the tanks of two LNG carriers with a capacity of 174,000 cbm.

Paris-based GTT said the tanks will be fitted with the company’s Mark III Flex membrane containment system.

GTT said HHI will deliver the vessels to “a European ship owner” between the fourth quarter of 2027 and the first quarter of 2028.

The firm did not provide any further information.

HHI recently won a contract worth about $530 million to build two LNG tankers and deliver them by February 2028.

Shipbuilding sources told LNG Prime that Greece’s Evalend Shipping ordered these two new LNG carriers.

HHI also won two LNG carriers from Evalend in August, marking the latter’s entry into the LNG sector.

In addition to these contracts, GTT recently secured a large order from HHI to design the tanks of 17 LNG carriers with a capacity of 174,000 cbm.

State-owned LNG giant QatarEnergy ordered these 17 LNG carriers with HHI as it continues to hold talks with other yards over the second phase of its giant shipbuilding program.

The shipbuilding deal is worth about $3.9 billion.
