The order, received in the second quarter of 2023, came on behalf of CMES LNG Carrier Investment INC.

GTT said it will design the tanks of the two 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.

The delivery of the vessels is scheduled between the fourth quarter of 2026 and the first quarter of 2027.

To remind, at the beginning of 2023, DSIC ordered the tank design of two LNGCs, also on behalf of CMES LNG Carrier Investment INC. The delivery of those vessels is scheduled for the third quarter of 2026.
