GTT, DSME ink cooperation deal
French LNG containment system designer GTT informed it has signed a cooperation deal with the South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering for the industrialization of its NO96 Max technology.
Under the deal, DSME will build a mock-up aiming at validating both the assembly and the cryogenic performance of the membrane containment system, and includes a study on the adaptation of industrial means in order to optimize manufacturing costs, GTT said on Wednesday.
According to GTT, the NO96 Max technology is an “optimized version of the NO96 system”, used in more than 120 vessels to date.
This technology has already received AIPs (approval in principal) from the main classification societies.
