RS, GTT ink new LNG cooperation deal

The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping said it has signed a new cooperation deal with France’s GTT to meet the demands of the evolving LNG market.

The classification society said in a statement the duo would look to further advance the safety and efficiency of new LNG transportation technologies.

The new agreement expands the scope of cooperation the duo initially formalized in March 2019.

Under the new deal, RS and GTT would work “towards the introduction of safe and viable membrane fuel tanks solutions for RS-classed ships while the application of LNG as fuel promotes membrane technologies for fuel tanks.”

Ongoing cooperation between the duo helps both firms gain knowledge and better understanding of the challenges that LNG ships are facing in the Arctic conditions, according to RS.

“To reflect the experience gained, and to keep the LNG ships safe and environmentally friendly, RS has been updating its rules and guidelines,” it said.

The duo have therefore agreed to cooperate in the rule development process, where GTT would act as an independent body providing technical review to the draft rules, RS added.
