GTT confirms Yangzijiang tank order for ten LNG-powered giants

France’s GTT said it had secured a large tank design order from Chinese shipyard Yangzijiang for ten LNG-powered containerships.

LNG Prime reported on June 26, citing shipbuilding sources, that CMA CGM ordered ten LNG-powered containerships at Yangzijiang and the vessels will feature MAN ME-GI engines and GTT’s LNG fuel tanks.

This order is worth about $2.4 billion.

According to a statement by GTT, it received the order from Yangzijiang to design the fuel tanks for ten vessels with a capacity of 24,000 teu in July, but it did not name the owner.

These ten container vessels each will have one single LNG fuel tank, with a capacity of 18,600 cbm. 

These are some of the world’s largest LNG fuel tanks, such as the ones installed in CMA CGM’s nine 23,000-teu giants built by Hudong-Zhonghua and Jiangnan.

GTT said the tanks will be fitted with the Mark III membrane containment technology, offering a low and guaranteed boil-off Rate (BOR) for improved vessel operations.

In addition to the engineering services and technical assistance to the shipyard, GTT will assist the operator through every step of its LNG-fueled project.

This includes commissioning of the LNG tank, first LNG bunkering operations, further operations and maintenance of the vessels.

GTT will also provide LNG training for the crews, supported by its proprietary G-Sim training simulator, which replicates the future LNG operations of the vessels, as well as its HEARS emergency response service.

Moreover, GTT will fit these ten vessels with Ascenz Marorka digital solutions, to monitor and optimize the operational performance of the vessels and further reduce their energy consumption and environmental footprint,

Yangzijiang will these vessels between the second quarter of 2026 and the first quarter of 2028, GTT said.
