The floating storage and regasification vessel will be fitted with GTT’s N096 membrane containment system, the French company said in a statement.

GTT did not reveal financial details of the contract.

Daewoo expects to deliver the vessel with a capacity of 263,000 cubic meters in 2023.

To remind, Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and Germany’s Uniper signed a build and charter deal for the FSRU last month.

The vessel will serve a planned liquefied natural gas import terminal in Wilhelmshaven, Germany on the North Sea.

LTW, a unit of Uniper, is the project developer and operator behind the potential terminal at the deep-sea port.
