GTT confirms DSIC order for LNG carrier duo

France’s GTT confirmed a tank design order for two 175,000-cbm LNG carriers with China’s Dalian Shipbuilding Industry (DSIC).

GTT said in a statement on Thursday DSIC would build the LNG carriers for CMES LNG Carrier Investment.

The vessels will feature GTT’s Mark III Flex membrane containment system.

CSSC’s DSIC said in March it had signed signed the shipbuilding deal with China Merchants Energy Shipping (CMES), a unit of China Merchants Group.

The deal also includes an option for two additional vessels.

According to DSIC, the LNG dual-fuel ships will have a length of 295 meters and a width of 46.4 meters.

This order marks DSIC’s entry into the construction of large LNG carriers.

CMES said it would pay $380 million for the two carriers while the price tag for the two optional vessels would reach $400 million.

The firm expects to take deliveries of the vessels in the third quarter of 2025 and the first quarter of 2026.
