SINGAPORE – Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has signed a technical assistance and license agreement with Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT).
Under the agreement, Keppel O&M’s network of global yards will be able to offer GTT’s LNG systems in the design, construction, and maintenance of various vessels, including floating storage and regasification units (FSRU).
Since completing its first LNG carrier repair in 1990, Keppel O&M claims to have undertaken the world’s first FLNG conversion and three FSRU conversions.
Philippe Berterottière, chairman and CEO of GTT, said: “By adopting our membrane technologies, Keppel O&M will be able to design optimized ships in terms of capacity and size and minimize the draught.”
