GTT receives an order from Dalian Shipbuilding for the tank design of three new LNG carriers

GTT announces that it has received an order from its partner Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co. Ltd. for the tank design of three new Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers, on behalf of China Energy.

GTT will design the tanks of these three vessels, which will each offer a capacity of 175,000 m3. The tanks will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane containment system developed by GTT.

It is reported that the construction contract for this series of LNG carriers was formally signed on August 31, 2023, with a total contracted ship price of approximately $700 million. The three new vessels are scheduled to be delivered on March 31, 2027, June 30, 2027, and April 30, 2028, respectively.

The shiptype of this project is developed by Dalian Shipbuilding independently.The total capacity of the 4-cargo-holds is 175,000 m3 with GTT’s proprietary Mark III Flex cargo containment system.The Liquid Cargo System is for LNG cargo transportation only and equipped with a re-liquefaction system.Every LNG carrier will install two WinGD LNG dual-fuel low-speed main engines with integrated iCER system, which reduces oil and gas consumption while making it possible to meet the most stringent IMO emission standards in both oil and gas modes.The vessels can dock at most of the world’s major LNG shore stations, with excellent portability and ship-to-shore compatibility.Equipped with 4 sets of dual-fuel electrical generators, the optimized design can meet the electrical load demand of the whole ship under different working conditions.

The delivery of the vessels is scheduled for the first half of 2027 and the first quarter of 2028.
