Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Licensed by GTT

MarineLink

GTT has signed a Technical Assistance and License Agreement (TALA) with South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard (HMD) targeting the outfitting of gas carriers, in particular small and middle scale (up to 50,000 m3) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel tanks for merchant ships.

Hyundai Mipo obtained its license after completing a qualification process that began in April 2018, including the construction of a Mark III Flex mockup and an audit lead by GTT.

The shipyard is now the third among the Hyundai group to be licensed by GTT. The two other construction sites, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, have been constructing LNGCs and FSRUs with GTT membrane technologies for numerous years.

The contract represents a step forward in the development of GTT technologies in the small-capacity market and will allow both partners to further expand their offer to ship owners, GTT said.
