GTT nets China LNG tanks gig
France’s GTT has secured an order to design two storage tanks for Beijing Gas Group’s Tianjin Nangang LNG terminal in China.
The LNG containment specialist won the contract from China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering.
GTT said that the 220,000-cbm tanks will be the largest land storage tanks in China.
The membrane full containment tanks will feature the GST technology developed by the French company.
This order follows the deal signed in November last year between GTT and the Chinese state-owned company Beijing Enterprises Group (BEG).
City gas distributor Beijing Gas, a unit of BEG, is building a 5 million tonnes per year LNG import terminal in the Tianjin south port Industrial Zone.
The LNG receiving terminal will be an emergency peak-shaving reserve project.
Beijing Gas plans to launch the tanks and the project in the fourth quarter of 2022.
