GTT notified by Sembcorp Marine for the tank design of an LNG bunker vessel for MOL
GTT says it has received an order from Sembcorp Marine shipyard concerning the tank design of an LNG bunker vessel for the ship-owner Indah Singa Maritime Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL).
GTT will design the tanks of the vessel, which will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane containment system, a technology developed by GTT. The vessel will offer a total cargo tank capacity of 12,000 m3. Its delivery is planned during the first half of 2021.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: “We are very pleased to receive this first order from Sembcorp Marine less than one year after signing a license agreement. This new LNG bunker vessel project strengthens our aspirations for the development of the use of LNG as a marine fuel and further demonstrates the relevance of GTT technologies for this type of application.”
