GTT has won a contract from Chinese shipyard Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding to design a liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel tank that forms part of the full retrofit of Hapag-Lloyd's 15,000-TEU Sajir.

The vessel retrofit project is being carried out with Hamburg-based ship designer Technolog, maritime solution provider MAN Energy Solution and its subsidiary MAN Cryo.



The design of the project is based on the use of an exoskeleton-type structure that is pre-equipped with GTT's Mark III cryogenic containment system, which will be installed and integrated into the vessel's cargo bay, reported LNG Industry of Farnham, Surrey.



By using the ship's structure as a support, this exoskeleton solution reduces the weight of the tank and shortens the time needed to complete the retrofit of the ship. The 6,500 cubic metre LNG tank will offer more efficient space utilisation for fuel storage. The ship's retrofit is scheduled for completion during the first semester of 2020.



Said GTT chief executive Philippe Berterottiere: 'It will be the first ever retrofit of this kind for the use of LNG as a marine fuel.'
