GTT announces it has received an order from the Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for the tanks design of two LNG carriers.

Each offering a capacity of 180,000 m3, these units will be built on behalf of the European ship-owner Celsius. The tanks will be fitted with the Mark III Flex containment system. The vessels’ delivery is expected for the end of 2020.

"We are very pleased to continue our excellent partnership with SHI with these two new orders and to accompany Celsius in its entry into the LNG industry," said Philippe Berterottière, chairman and CEO of GTT.
