GTT to design the fuel tanks for six new LNG-fueled mid-size container vessels

GTT has been chosen by its partner the Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries to design the cryogenic fuel tanks of six LNG fueled container vessels.

Used as a marine fuel, LNG is today the best industrial tool to preserve air quality, a major public health issue. It reduces sulfur oxide emissions by 99%, fine particles by 91% and nitrous oxide emissions by 92%. It also reduces ship emissions by up to 20% of CO2 compared to a conventional ship.

Each LNG fuel tank will be fitted with the Mark III membrane containment technology developed by GTT, demonstrating that GTT technology is as attractive for mid-size size container vessels as for very large ones. The vessels deliveries are scheduled to occur between the third quarter of 2023 and the fourth quarter of 2024.

In addition to the engineering services and technical assistance at the shipyard, GTT will assist the operator through every step of its first LNG-fueled projects: commissioning of the LNG tank, first LNG bunkering operations, as well as further specific LNG operations and maintenance of the vessels. Moreover, GTT will provide LNG training for the crews, supported by its proprietary G-Sim training simulator, which replicates the future LNG operations of the vessels. GTT will also offer its HEARS emergency response service with 24/7 technical assistance. 

In addition, GTT will fit these six vessels with its “GTT Digital” platform, a “smart shipping” solution to monitor and optimize the operational performance of the vessels and further reduce their energy consumption and environmental footprint.

"This new order confirms the performance and safety of GTT solutions adapted to the use of LNG as a marine fuel, both for mid-size and large container vessels, thus contributing to the decarbonization of ships," Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, declared. "The GTT teams are proud to contribute, alongside its partners, to the energy transition of maritime transport.”

Maintenance and Reliability: Prevent unplanned shutdowns for LNG liquefaction facilities
-Peter Zhang
Although an unplanned shutdown is an integrated part of the operational and safety management system of an operating plant, unplanned shutdowns for a modern LNG liquefaction operating facility often become some of the costliest events for the facility owner.
Regional Focus: Balancing Africa’s world-class LNG projects and the environment

The construction of world-scale natural gas processing plants by three of Africa’s top natural gas producers has attracted scrutiny, despite efforts to commercialize the continent’s hydrocarbon resources and expand energy supply on the continent.


Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Register Now

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
