French LNG containment system specialist GTT has received two orders from the Korean shipyards Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI) for the tank design of two LNG carriers at the end of September.

Each vessel will have the capacity to transport up to 174,000 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas, GTT said in its statement.

GTT will design the tanks of the vessels, which will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane containment system, a technology developed by GTT.

The first LNGC will be built at the SHI shipyard on behalf of the Japanese ship-owner NYK and will be delivered during the third quarter of 2021.

The second LNGC will be built in HSHI shipyard on behalf of an Asian ship-owner which name remains confidential at this stage. The vessel delivery is scheduled for the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, GTT said.
