In October 2021, SHi ordered the tank design of four new LNG carriers on behalf of a Bermuda-based ship-owner.

As part of this order, GTT will design the tanks of the vessels. Also, each vessel will offer a capacity of 174,000 cubic metres.

The LNGC tanks will feature the GTT Mark III Flex membrane containment system.
