GTT announces it has received an order from the Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for the tank design of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers.

Each offering a capacity of 174,000 m3, these units will be built on behalf of the Greek ship-owner Cardiff. The tanks will be fitted with the Mark III Flex containment system. The vessels’ delivery is expected for the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021 respectively.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared: "We are pleased to pursue our partnership of excellence with HHI shipyard and with ship-owner Cardiff which already owns four LNGCs equipped with GTT technologies and has nine LNGCs on order."
