French LNG containment systems specialist GTT has received an order from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for the tank design of a new 174,000-cubic meter LNG carrier.

GTT said on Wednesday that Samsung Heavy ordered the tank on behalf of ship-owner Minerva Gas.

The company added that GTT’s membrane containment system Mark III Flex+ was selected for the design of the tanks.

The delivery of the ship was planned during the third quarter of 2021. Financial or any other details regarding the deal were left undisclosed.

This is SHI’s second tank design order in quick succession. Namely, SHI ordered a tank design for an LNG carrier last week on behalf of a European shipowner.
