LNG Bunker Mast Design Gets Approval in Principal

Paris-based GTT reports Approval in Principal from Bureau Veritas for its Reach4 bunker mast for transferring liquefied natural gas fuel. “GTT affirms its focus on designing applications that will bolster the use of LNG as a fuel,” CEO Philippe Berterottière said in a release.

GTT is in discussions to commercialize its Reach4 mast for LNG bunkering.

GTT is in discussions to commercialize its Reach4 mast for LNG bunkering.

GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) is known for its weight- and space-saving membrane containment systems for LNG carriers and bunker vessels. The Reach4 mast is designed to fit on an LNG bunker vessel and facilitate “a simple and safe transfer of LNG fuel to a client vessel.”

‘Well Proven’

“This new system applies well proven methods for conventional fueling adapted to constraints specific to LNG,” the company says. It is “well-suited to bunker most ships, whatever their bunker station arrangement.”

The Reach4 mast features break-away couplings for safe and reliable emergency disconnections, while “a patented configuration prevents rapid disconnections and keeps the breakaway couplings in a fixed position on the mast to ensure simple and safe deployment.”

The Reach4 system is already being integrated in bunker vessel designs, GTT says.
