GTT secures new LNG tank gigs

French LNG containment giant GTT has secured new orders from two South Korean shipyards.

GTT said in a statement the orders were received in 2023 and the 174,000-cbm vessels would be built for a Japanese owner.

According to GTT, the first LNG carrier will be realized by Hanwha Ocean, previously known as DSME.

This vessel will be fitted with the NO96 GW membrane containment system, while the delivery of the vessel is scheduled for the third quarter of 2027.

Hanwha Ocean secured orders for five LNG carriers in 2023, compared to record 38 LNG carriers in 2022.

Japan’s MOL ordered three LNG carriers at Hanwha Ocean and Greece’s Maran Gas ordered two vessels last year.

As per the second LNG carrier, GTT said it would be built by Samsung Heavy Industries.

This vessel will incorporate GTT’s Mark III Flex membrane containment system, while the delivery of the vessel is scheduled for the third quarter of 2026.

Samsung Heavy received in total seven LNG carrier orders last year, compared to record 36 LNG carrier orders in 2022.

MOL ordered five LNG carriers at Samsung Heavy and US-based Chevron ordered two vessels.
