GTT obtains AiP from Bureau Veritas for ultra large container vessels
GTT has obtained approval in principle (AiP) for the NO96 membrane containment system for LNG fuel tank application for Ultra Large Container Vessel (ULCV) from Bureau Veritas (BV) classification society.
"We are pleased to receive this new Approval in Principle which allows GTT to offer increasingly competitive solutions that meet the requirements of the LNG market as a marine fuel," said Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT. "This will enable all our licensees1 to offer membrane solutions to this market."
GTT and BV reviewed the compatibility and safe integration of the NO96 technology as an LNG fuel tank in a container vessel hull. Over the course of the AIP study, a liquid motion assessment of the tank configuration has been performed.
"LNG is at the heart of the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable maritime industry," said Matthieu de Tugny, President Marine & Offshore at Bureau Veritas. It is a pleasure, once again, to be able to support GTT with our expertise - encouraging innovation and the expansion of options available for LNG fuel containment systems."
