It will design the tanks of the two vessels, which will each offer a total cargo capacity of 174,000 m3 and will be fitted with the Mark III Flex membrane containment system developed by GTT.

GTT said it got the order in the first quarter of 2023 on behalf of a European ship-owner.

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

The order is one of the many GTT has received from Hyundai Samho this year.

It received orders for the tank design of multiple LNGCs as well as very large ethane carriers (VLECs). They were made on behalf of European, Middle Eastern, and Asian shipowners.
