GTT secures LNG tank gig for eight vessels

French LNG containment giant GTT has secured a tank design order for eight 174,000-cbm LNG carriers.

GTT said a statement it won the order in the second quarter of this year from an Asian shipyard and the vessels will be built on behalf of a Middle Eastern shipowner.

According to GTT, the tanks will be fitted with a membrane containment system from its NO96 series.

Also, the vessels will be delivered between the fourth quarter of 2026 and the first quarter of 2028, GTT said.

This order is probably related to QatarEnergy’s massive shipbuilding program.

QatarEnergy recently said it has completed the conventional sizes vessels portion of the program, bringing the total number of ships for which it signed time charter parties to 104 vessels.

The state-owned LNG giant signed time charter agreements on March 24 with compatriot Nakilat for 25 174,000-cbm LNG carriers as part of the second phase of its shipbuilding program.

South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy industries will construct 17 of the 25 LNG vessels, while Hanwha Ocean, previously known as DSME, will build the remaining eight.

The new order GTT won could be related to the Nakilat vessels which will be built at Hanwha Ocean.
