GTT, the French maker of LNG containment system has received an order from South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries to equip a new LNG carrier with its Mark III Flex containment system.

Hyundai’s shipyard based in Ulsan will build the 180,000-cbm vessel on behalf of the Norwegian shipping company Norspan LNG Xii AS (Knutsen). Delivery is scheduled in 2019.

At present, the Knutsen fleet contains ten LNG carriers in service and one on order. These LNG carriers are all equipped with GTT membrane containment systems.

Mark III Flex, the technology adopted for this new LNG carrier, an evolution of the Mark range, allows a boil-off rate of 0.085%V/day, according to GTT.

“It is the second order of this type this year with the HHI shipyard and the shipowner Knutsen. It highlights the excellent relationship we have with these two key players of the maritime industry,” said Philippe Berterottière, CEO of GTT.
