French LNG containment specialist GTT has received an order from the Korean shipyard Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries for the fuel tank design of three LNG-fueled container vessels for the Singapore-based shipping company Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS).

These three new vessels will each have a capacity of 7,700 containers.

They will feature LNG tanks, each holding up to 6,000 cubic metres of LNG as fuel. The tanks will have the GTT’s Mark III Flex membrane containment technology.

Hyundai Sahmo will deliver the three containerships during the second half of 2024.
