Sembcorp Marine and GTT sign licensing agreement

Leading Singaporean shipbuilding group Sembcorp Marine has taken another big step in fulfilling its LNG ambitions. It has signed a technical assistance and license agreement (TALA) with France’s GTT for the design and construction of Sembcorp Gravifloat, FSRU and mid-scale LNG carrier products, using GTT membrane solutions.

Sembcorp Marine received its approval after successfully completing a qualification process which started in 2017, including the building of a Mark III mock-up and an audit conducted by GTT. This new partnership allows both companies to target new markets, especially focusing on solutions for LNG terminals, and to advance the development of LNG in the global fuel supply chain.

“We are pleased to count Sembcorp Marine among our new-building partners. We are committed to developing and building together new LNG infrastructures which can be installed worldwide, to provide energy in remote areas,” declared Philippe Berterottière, chairman and CEO of GTT.
