GTT nets tank gig for Celsius LNG carrier

French LNG containment giant GTT has secured a tank design order from China Merchants Heavy Industry-Jiangsu for one LNG carrier being built for Denmark’s Celsius Tankers, a unit of Celsius Shipping.

GTT said in a statement on Tuesday it has secured the contract for the 180,000-cbm LNG carrier in the second quarter of 2024.

According to GTT, the tanks of this vessel will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane containment system.

GTT added that delivery of the LNG carrier is scheduled for the third quarter of 2027.

The firm did not provide further information.

In April last year, GTT confirmed it had won its first LNG tank order from China Merchants Heavy Industry-Jiangsu for four 180,000-cbm LNG carriers.

LNG Prime reported in December 2022 that Denmark’s Celsius Tankers ordered four 180,000-cbm LNG carriers at the China Merchants yard.

This was the first LNG carrier order in China for Celsius Tankers and the first order for large LNG carriers for China Merchants Heavy Industry-Jiangsu.

The yard won a license from GTT in October 2022 to construct large LNG carriers using GTT membrane technologies.

Following the initial order, Celsius booked two more LNG carriers at the Chinese shipbuilder in October 2023 and this LNG carrier for which GTT won a new contract is probably the first vessel from that batch.

Celsius has six firm LNG carriers on order at the Chinese shipbuilder but it also has six more options.
