GTT has received an order from the Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua for the tank design of an LNG bunker vessel on behalf of the Japanese ship-owner Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL).

GTT will design the tanks of the vessel, which will be fitted with the Mark III membrane containment system, GTT said in its statement.

The vessel will have a total cargo tank capacity of 18,600 cubic meters, and it will be operated by the ship-owner MOL and chartered by Total.

This vessel has been specifically designed to supply LNG bunker in the Mediterranean area to a wide range of vessels, including containerships, tankers, ferries and large cruise ships. The vessel will use LNG as propulsion fuel and integrate a complete re-liquefaction of the boil-off gas.

The delivery of the vessel is planned during the fourth quarter of 2021.
