France’s GTT bags German FSRU contract

French LNG containment specialist GTT has won a contract from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering for the Wilhelmshaven FSRU.

The floating storage and regasification vessel will be fitted with GTT’s N096 membrane containment system, the French company said in a statement.

GTT did not reveal financial details of the contract.

Daewoo expects to deliver the vessel with a capacity of 263,000 cubic meters in 2023.

To remind, Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Germany’s Uniper signed a build and charter deal for the FSRU last month.

The vessel will serve a planned liquefied natural gas import terminal in Wilhelmshaven, Germany on the North Sea.

LTW, a unit of Uniper, is the project developer and operator behind the potential terminal at the deep-sea port.
