GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) is a technology and engineering company which designs cryogenic membrane containment systems dedicated to the transport and storage of liquefied gases, in particular LNG. For over 55 years, GTT has developed technological expertise in the liquefied gas industry, building trusting relationships and lasting partnerships with the different stakeholders. The company provides them with established, secure and efficient technologies. GTT helps its customers define their requirements before translating them into membrane-based solutions for multi-gas and LNG transport, as well as onshore and offshore storage.

New markets: The company is currently expanding its offer to new and promising markets, providing customised technological and engineering solutions for small and mid-scale vessels, as well as new applications for the LNG market, such as the use of LNG as a propulsion fuel and the associated logistic chain. GTT develops innovative solutions to ease bunkering operations and to optimise the LNG volume and the space occupied, resulting in a minimum loss of cargo capacity. The company offers highly competitive storage and handling solutions which cover the whole logistic chain, from the LNG liquefaction terminal in a producer country to the tank of an LNG-fuelled ship.

 GTT and its subsidiaries have also developed a broader range of services to better support its customers and partners focusing on operational issues, for the entire lifetime of the vessel.

 Future stakes: 2020 will see the implementation of the Global Sulphur Cap, which will reduce the limit for SOx emissions in the world’s oceans from 3.50% today to 0.50%. The European Union and China have also announced measures to limit the emissions of vessels in many ports and high traffic areas. LNG as fuel offers a viable solution for this energy transition. LNG propulsion has been used successfully on LNG carriers for many years. It reduces significantly the emission of SOx and NOx.
