GTT has received an order from the Korean shipyard Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) for the design of a new floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU1) on behalf of the Japanese ship-owner Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd. (MOL).
The FSRU with a capacity of 263,000m3 will be fitted with the NO96 membrane cryogenic containment system, a technology developed by GTT. The vessel delivery is scheduled in 2023. It will be located in Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
Philippe Berterottière, chairman and CEO of GTT, said: "We are delighted to be working with DSME and MOL, two very long-term partners, on this new very large capacity FSRU project.”
