French liquefied natural gas containment system specialist, GTT, has been contracted by CMA CGM to provide services and assistance for the commissioning, operation, and maintenance of its future 23,000 TFE LNG-powered container ships.

With an 18,600-cbm LNG tank, these ships are the largest container ships in the world to use LNG as fuel, GTT said in its statement.

The GTT service package includes the training of crews of the CMA CGM fleet through the provision of the G-Sim training simulator, specially adapted to replicate the LNG operations of CMA CGM vessels.

GTT will also provide onboard technical assistance during the commissioning of LNG tanks and during the first bunkering operations. If necessary, CMA CGM may use the HEARS service, to obtain 24/7 technical assistance.

With the entry into force of the latest amendment to MARPOL Annex VI (the Global Sulphur Cap) on January 1, 2020, and in order to facilitate the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel, GTT continues to expand its portfolio of services to ship-owners, the statement reads.
