GTT and South Korean marine engineering company, DSEC, have signed a technical assistance and license agreement for the construction of GTT membrane containment systems.
This agreement addresses the requirement of clients wishing to fit membrane type LNG fuel tanks to cruise ships and ropaxes, plus other vessel types.
DSEC has the ability to implement complete solutions, including FGSS (Fuel Gas Supply System) and CHS (Cargo Handling System) systems.
With this new co-operation in place, shipyards no longer have to acquire the knowhow required for the construction of GTT membranes and of LNG handling systems.
“We are proud of this collaboration with DSEC, one of the key players of marine LNG in Korea and worldwide. LNG as a fuel market is entering a growth phase. DSEC and GTT will provide an integrated offer to shipowners willing to adopt LNG as a fuel or the technology of membrane tanks, ” said Philippe Berterottière (pictured), GTT Chairman and CEO.
