French LNG containment specialist GTT on Monday said it has received an order from South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries to equip a new LNG carrier with its Mark V technology.

The vessel, expected to be delivered in 2019, will be built at SHI’s shipyard in Geoje Island for an unnamed European ship-owner, GTT said in its statement.

“With Mark V, GTT has created a real breakthrough by reducing the guaranteed daily boil-off rate to 0.07% of the tank volume. In addition, this new solution relies on a new Invar metallic secondary membrane.”

More than 227 LNG vessels in the world  are equipped with the Mark technology, of which 45 are under construction, GTT noted in the statement.
