GTT and Keppel Offshore & Marine sign a license agreement for the construction of membrane tank solutions
GTT has signed a Technical Assistance and License Agreement (TALA) with Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) enabling Keppel O&M to market liquefied natural gas solutions leveraging GTT’s membrane containment systems, the company said in its press release. Keppel O&M’s network of global yards will be licensed as outfitter to offer GTT’s LNG systems for the equipment and maintenance of LNG carriers, LNG Bunker vessels, LNG-fuelled vessels, as well as floating storage and regasification units (FSRUs), with a particular focus on vessels with capacities between 30,000 and 80,000 m3.
GTT membrane systems have become the chosen technologies for new LNG carriers and offshore applications. Having completed its first LNG carrier repair in 1990, Keppel O&M has a long lasting experience in the development of cryogenic solutions across the LNG value chain.
Keppel O&M’s expertise and experience in GTT’s systems began in 2004 when Keppel Shipyard became an approved repair yard for ships equipped with GTT membrane systems and was extended in 2014 when Keppel Singmarine, signed a License Agreement for new-builds.
