Hyundai Samho is building these two new LNGCs on behalf of an African ship-owner. The vessels will each offer a cargo capacity of 174,000 cubic metres.

As part of this order, GTT will design the tanks of these ships. The LNGC tanks will feature the Mark III Flex membrane containment system.

The shipyard will deliver the vessels in the first quarter of 2025 to the yet undisclosed shipowner.
