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.

Philippe Berterottière, CEO of GTT, said that the parties are again choosing GTT technology, following an initial order for three vessels from earlier this year.

Thomas Preben Hansen, commercial Director of EPS, added: “LNG plays a key role in EPS’ alternative marine fuel program and will be an essential commodity as the world and industry, transition to cleaner energy solutions. We look forward to continuing our partnership with GTT as we expand our decarbonisation and environmental preservation efforts.”
