GTT said it will provide its field expertise for inspections, maintenance, repairs and engineering consultancy, adding that JOVO will also benefit from access to GTT’s HEARS® emergency hotline, available 24/7, to provide rapid technical assistance to crews.

These new TSAs follow a first services contract, still in effect, signed between the two parties in August 2022.

Adnan Ezzarhouni, General Manager of GTT China, commented: “It is with great satisfaction that we strengthen our collaboration with JOVO through the signature of two new service contracts. GTT is pleased to support the growing development of JOVO’s LNG shipping activities.”

Lu Yuan, Vice President and Head of LNG and Shipping of JOVO Group, stated: “JOVO is pleased to expand its cooperation with GTT. Our teams will benefit from GTT’s expertise to improve the performance of our vessels, as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of our core assets and actively develop new track business in our energy logistics services.”

To remind, in 2023, Ascenz Marorka, a GTT brand, was awarded two contracts by JOVO to equip two LNGCs with its ‘Smart Shipping’ solution.

According to GTT, the contracts cover the installation of automatic data collection systems and intelligent software for managing and optimizing the energy and environmental performance of ships.
