GTT’s smart shipping unit scores LNG carrier gig from Jovo

GTT’s unit Ascenz Marorka has secured two contracts from Chinese energy firm Jovo to equip two LNG carriers with its smart shipping solution.

According to a statement by the French LNG containment giant, these contracts cover the installation of automatic data collection systems and intelligent software for managing and optimizing the energy and environmental performance of ships.

Crew on board and personnel ashore will benefit from a comprehensive set of modules such as voyage management, LNG cargo optimization, machinery optimization, trim optimization, fuel monitoring, CII monitoring, EU MRV and IMO DCS reporting, it said.

In addition, JOVO will also benefit from LNG features developed through GTT’s expertise such as LNG cargo monitoring, boil-off gas management, and heel optimization, while both vessels will be equipped with the latest version of weather routing solution and services, the firm said.

GTT did not provide the price tag of the deal.

The two LNG carriers in question include Jovo’s first 79,800-cbm mid-scale LNG carrier, Mulan Spirit.

China’s Jiangnan Shipyard is building this vessel and expects to deliver it by the end of this year.

The vessel has dual-fuel engines and GTT’s Mark III Flex containment system.

Moreover, the second ship is the 2008-built 154,982-cbm, Arrow Spirit, previously known as Trinity Arrow.

Jovo purchased this steam turbine LNG carrier, which also features GTT’s Mark III containment system, this year from Shoei Kisen for some $85 million, VesselsValue data shows.
