GTT confirms order for eight Q-Max LNG carriers

French LNG containment giant GTT said it had secured a large tank design order for eight new very large liquefied natural gas carriers.

GTT said in a statement late on Tuesday it won the order from a Chinese shipyard and the tanks of these eight LNG carriers will each offer five tanks with a total capacity of 271,000 cbm.

The tanks will be fitted with GTT’s NO96 Super+ membrane containment system developed by GTT.

GTT added that delivery of the vessels is scheduled between the second quarter of 2028 and the fourth quarter of 2029, but it did not provide any additional infomation.

LNG Prime reported on January 10, citing shipbuilding sources, that state-owned LNG giant QatarEnergy signed a shipbuilding deal with China’s Hudong-Zhonghua for the construction of eight Q-Max LNG carriers as part of its shipbuilding program.

Hudong-Zhonghua’s 271,000-cbm LNG carrier is 344 meters long, 53.6 meters wide, and has a design draft of 12 meters.

It features dual-fuel propulsion, a reliquefaction system, an air lubrication system, and GTT’s NO96 Super+ containment tech.

Despite its size, the vessel would be able to dock at more than 70 LNG terminals along the main trade route, the shipbuilder previously said.
