Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) has signed a global technical services agreement (TSA) with the Hong-Kong based ship management company, Fleet Management.
GTT will support Fleet Management with the shipbuilding supervision, maintenance and operation of the vessels it manages.
“We are very pleased to accompany and be a partner with Fleet Management to support their growing development within the ethane and LNG shipping business, both at newbuilding stages as well as during fleet operation,” commented Philippe Berterottière, chair and chief executive of GTT.
The deal includes technical assistance for inspection, maintenance, repairs, operations and engineering services, and access to the HEARS1 emergency hotline which enables ship-owners, operators and their crews to contact GTT’s experts round-the-clock to respond to operational issues.
Fleet Management is currently supervising the newbuilding of the new generation of very large ethane carriers under construction in Korea with deliveries in October 2020 onwards, all equipped with GTT Mark III technology.
