South Korean shipyard placed an order on behalf of a European shipowner. The order will see GTT design the tanks of the two vessels, each with a total cargo capacity of 200,000 cubic metres.

They will also be fitted with the Mark III Flex+ membrane containment system developed by GTT.

The LNG carriers are scheduled for delivery between the second and fourth quarters of 2027.

A similar order was placed by HD HHI at GTT in February this year. HHI placed the order on behalf of an undisclosed European shipowner for three LNG carriers which will also offer a total cargo capacity of 200,000 cubic metres each.

The delivery of these vessels is scheduled between the second and fourth quarters of 2026.
