French engineering company GTT has signed a Technical Assistance and License Agreement (TALA) with Sembcorp Marine for the design and construction of membrane tank solutions.

Under the deal, GTT would undertake the works for Sembcorp Marine’s Gravifloat, FSRU and mid-scale LNG carrier products using GTT membrane solutions.

Sembcorp Marine received its approval after completing a qualification process which started in 2017, including the building of a Mark III mock-up and an audit conducted by GTT.

This partnership allows both companies to target new markets, especially focusing on solutions for LNG terminals, and to advance the development of LNG in the global fuel supply chain.

“We are committed to developing and building together new LNG infrastructures which can be installed worldwide, to provide energy in remote areas,” Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said.

“By combining our respective solutions, we can ensure safer and more reliable LNG delivery, handling and use, and in turn contribute towards more sustainable power generation and consumption,” Wong Weng Sun, President & CEO of Sembcorp Marine, added.
