GTT, the French designer of LNG containment systems, said that its new Mark V technology has earned a general approval from the classification society Lloyd’s Register.
The company’s Mark V technology was also recently granted a similar general approval from DNV-GL.
According to GTT, the Mark V technology is an optimized version of the Mark III system and its sister Mark III Flex.
As with the Mark III and Mark III Flex, the Mark V technology is composed of a double insulation with reinforced polyurethane foam.
The new system also includes a nickel-steel alloy corrugated secondary membrane.
