Four LNG-fueled container ships will have cryogenic fuel tanks designed by GTT, who also partners with the Korean shipyard Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI).

These vessels, each capable of carrying 7,900 containers, will be equipped with an LNG fuel tank with a capacity of 6,000m3. Each LNG fuel tank will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane containment technology.

The delivery of the vessels is scheduled for the third and the fourth quarter of 2024.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: "This new order confirms the strong momentum of LNG as a fuel that started in 2021, and the growing interest of international shipyards and shipowners for GTT’s membrane technology in this segment. We are convinced that LNG is a solution to reduce the carbon footprint of maritime transport and, we will continue to work with our partners to provide them cutting-edge technologies to improve their energy and environmental performance."
