Cochin Shipyard pens deal to build small LNG carriers

India’s Cochin Shipyard has penned a memorandum of understand (MoU) with Engineers India for the design and construction of small-scale LNG carriers.

The MoU seeks to leverage on Engineers India’s knowhow in process and systems engineering and Cochin Shipyard’s strengths in ship design and construction.

The collaboration is expected to create an LNG value chain ecosystem to cater to the coastal and inland water transport segment in the Indian subcontinent.

Cochin Shipyard possessed the licence for the construction of membrane technology of France’s Gaztransport Technigaz (GTT) for the cargo containment systems of large LNG ships.
