GTT and DSEC team on LNG fuel tank technology

Engineering company GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) and DSEC, a Korean naval engineering company, have signed a Technical Assistance and License Agreement for the construction of GTT membrane containment systems.

This deal addresses the requirement of shipowners, manager and shipyards wishing to fit membrane type LNG fuel tanks to all types of vessels, including cruise ships, container ships, bulk carriers or roll-on/roll-off ferries.

DSEC is already recognised for its ability to implement complete solutions including FGSS (Fuel Gas Supply System) and CHS (Cargo Handling System) 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, chairman and ceo of GTT.
