GTT nets second Zvezda order for Arc7 LNG carriers

France’s GTT is continuing to receive new orders and has secured a contract from Russia’s Zvezda shipyard for the tank design of ten ARC7 ice-breaking LNG carriers.

Earlier this year, the French LNG containment specialist received an order from Zvezda for five ARC7 vessels.

These 172,600-cbm vessels will be able to navigate in ice-covered waters and will serve Novatek’s projects in the Arctic.

They will mainly serve Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 project, but also Yamal LNG and other planned projects.

Furthermore, all of the vessels will feature GTT’s Mark III membrane containment system.

GTT added that delivery of the vessels is scheduled between the second half of 2024 and the end of 2025.
