GTT’s smart shipping unit wins contract for GasLog’s entire LNG fleet

GTT’s unit Ascenz Marorka has secured a contract from Greek LNG shipping firm GasLog to equip the latter’s entire fleet of more than 35 LNG carriers with its smart shipping solution.

According to a statement by GTT, GasLog selected Ascenz Marorka after a “comprehensive market screening, an in-depth technical assessment and a pilot on two vessels.”

The 5-year contract covers the integration of high frequency sensor data and manually reported data as well as a comprehensive set of online applications for managing, monitoring, and optimizing the energy and the environmental performance of the ships.

These include weather routing, voyage management, hull and propeller performance monitoring, machinery optimization, trim optimization, emissions monitoring, and regulatory reporting, GTT said.

In addition, GasLog will also benefit from LNG features developed through GTT’s expertise such as LNG cargo management, boil-off gas optimization, heel optimization, LNG ageing, roll-over prevention, emergency departure management, and cargo conditioning, it said.

The project includes a development roadmap to make the Ascenz Marorka solution a key driver of the GasLog digital transformation and to support its objectives in terms of fleet performance optimization, compliance with the environmental regulations, and operational excellence, GTT said.

The Paris-based LNG containment giant did not provide the price tag of the deal.

In July, GasLog completed its merger agreement with NYSE-listed GasLog Partners.

In total, the fleet of both GasLog and GasLog Partners consists of 37 LNG carriers with 33 on the water, one undergoing conversion to an FSRU, and four under construction.
