GTT Opens Office in Houston, USA
In order to tap the global LNG market opportunities, GTT is opening a subsidiary in Houston. The inauguration of the new office will take place on September 13th in the Omni Houston Galleria Hotel.
GTT is moving with the LNG global demand growth. LNG has become an alternative and an efficient energy as a marine fuel, less polluant than HFO and potentially less costly than other alternatives. In this context, to serve new market opportunities as well as strengthening its relationship with North American LNG market as a whole, GTT has opened GTT North America.
The new subsidiary based in Houston will concentrate on the use of LNG as a marine fuel for commercial vessels. This will require the design and construction of small scale LNG carriers or bunker barges, small scale LNG storage tanks and LNG fuel tanks for larger commercial vessels.
The Houston team has been assigned the task of promoting technologies, applications and GTT services and to place
GTT as a legitimate and essential player in the LNG fuel tank market with ship-owners, operators and engineering companies.
The Houston new office will be 5 000 miles away from GTT office in Saint Rémy-lès-Chevreuse (France), but will remain close the GTT company vision of permitting access to more people both safely and economically to a clean energy.
