GTT launches LNG Optim, a new digital ‘Smart Shipping’ solution, a tool which helps LNG operators, as well as operators of LNG carriers and LNG-fuelled vessel owners, to prepare the voyages of their vessels in order to reduce the overall fuel consumption and to manage boil-off gas in the tanks.

The company says that for several years, the group has been extending its range of services to support the maritime industry in its digital and energy transformation, with the launch of Smart Shipping solutions to optimise the energy performance of ships. The LNG Optim solution, based on GTT's expertise in studying boil-off gas management and developed in collaboration with the Group’s subsidiaries, Ascenz, Marorka and OSE Engineering, has already been adopted by major players in LNG shipping. 

Studies performed by GTT to design this solution took into account the modelling of complex phenomena such as LNG ageing, the influence of sea states on boil-off gas generation, as well as the impact of active systems like reliquefaction plants and sub-coolers.

Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “This new technological innovation from GTT, which is the result of joint work between the different teams of the Group, marks our ambition in the very promising field of Smart Shipping. Our Digital offer aims to support ship-owners, charterers and operators in the energy transition, by optimizing the operational and environmental performance of their LNG-fuelled vessels”.
