GTT gets HSHI tank gig for two LNG-powered containerships

South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries has contracted Paris-based GTT to design tanks for two LNG-powered containerships.

GTT said in a statement the two new vessels, both with a capacity of 15,600 containers, would each get 12,800-cbm LNG fuel tanks.

The tanks will feature GTT’s Mark III Flex membrane containment technology.

HHI should deliver the vessels between the fourth quarter of 2023 and the second quarter of 2024, GTT said, without revealing the name of the owner.

In addition to the engineering services and on-site technical assistance, GTT said it would assist the operator through every step of the first LNG-fueled project.

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

Moreover, GTT will provide training for the crews, supported by its proprietary G-Sim training simulator, which replicates the future LNG operations of the vessels, but it will also offer its HEARS emergency response service with 24/7 technical assistance.

GTT added it would fit these vessels with its “GTT Digital” platform, a “smart shipping” solution to monitor and optimize the operational performance of the vessels and further reduce their energy consumption and environmental footprint.
