GTT’s smart shipping unit bags contract for BGC’s LNG carrier

GTT’s unit Ascenz Marorka has secured a contract from Brunei Gas Carriers (BGC) to equip the latter’s 154,000-cbm LNG carrier Amadi with its smart shipping solution.

According to a statement by GTT, the contract includes on-board data collection, regulatory reporting, performance management services, LNG cargo and operation optimization, and weather routing.

Ascenz Marorka’s digital solution, which will be installed on the 2015-built vessel by the end of this year, provides “multiple advantages, in terms of cost savings, operational efficiency, and environmental impact,” GTT said.

GTT’s unit also recently secured a contract from Greek LNG shipping firm GasLog to equip the latter’s entire fleet of more than 35 LNG carriers with its smart shipping solution.

As per BGC, the Brunei government holds 80 percent in BGC, while Shell and Mitsubishi Corporation’s Diamond Gas Carriers each have a 10 percent stake.

BGC owns four A-Class vessels, namely Arkat, Amali, Amani, and Amadi, ranging from 147,000 cbm to 154,800 cbm.

The company’s vessels serve the 6.7 mtpa Brunei LNG export plant in Lumut, one of the world’s oldest LNG export facilities.

Shell and Mitsubishi have each a 25 percent share in the facility, while the Brunei government holds 50 percent.
