Friday, January 15, 2021 

GTT of France has obtained approval in principle (AiP) for its NO96 membrane containment system for LNG fuel tank application for Ultra Large Container Vessel (ULCV) from Bureau Veritas (BV) classification society.

GTT and BV reviewed the compatibility and safe integration of the NO96 technology as an LNG fuel tank in a container vessel hull. Over the course of the AIP study, a liquid motion assessment of the tank configuration was performed.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO, GTT, said: "We are pleased to receive this new Approval in Principle which allows GTT to offer increasingly competitive solutions that meet the requirements of the LNG market as a marine fuel. This will enable all our licensees to offer membrane solutions to this market.”

Matthieu de Tugny, President Marine & Offshore, Bureau Veritas, said: “LNG is at the heart of the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable maritime industry. It is a pleasure, once again, to be able to support GTT with our expertise - encouraging innovation and the expansion of options available for LNG fuel containment systems.”
