Fleet Management has joined hands with GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) to enhance their service offerings during vessel construction and management of LNG vessels and vessels installed with GTT cargo containment system.

Kishore Rajvanshy, managing director at Fleet Management, said the collaboration will allow the ship manager to leverage on GTT’s expertise in design and technologies in the newbuilding and subsequent operations and maintenance of their LNG vessels.

“We are currently managing the construction of six very large ethane carriers (VLEC) with GTT Mark III membrane containment system in Korea. These vessels are unique in design and have several new features such as multigas deep well pumps, increased design speed, reduce boil off rate, etc,” Rajvanshy explained.

Philippe Berterottiere, chairman and ceo of GTT, commented: “We are very pleased to accompany and be a partner with Fleet Management to support their growing development within ethane and LNG shipping business, both at newbuilding stages as well as during fleet operation.”
