Light Structures and GTT have joined forces to deliver Sloshing Monitoring systems to the growing LNG fleet.

Light Structures, the leading producer of fiber-optic monitoring technology has recently released its new Sloshing Monitoring system and announced today that it has entered a marketing agreement with GTT, the French technology and engineering company who is the market leader of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) membrane containment systems.

 

In the coming years, Light Structures and GTT will work together to develop and market tools and services for the operators of LNG vessels with membrane containment systems, to enhance the safety of operations by monitoring cargo sloshing in the tanks. The new system will be based on Light Structures’s fiber optic monitoring solution and a prediction module to be developed by the partners. Inge C. Paulsen, Light Structures’ Managing director claims that this will be a breakthrough for their monitoring technology and that it will most likely become a standard equipment on new LNG carriers.

 

GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz) is a French engineering company formed in 1994 by the merger of the two major players in the field of LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) membrane containment systems Gaztransport and S.N.Technigaz resulting in a cumulative experience of more than 80 years. GTT specializes in designing and licensing the construction of cryogenic LNG storage tanks for the shipbuilding industry.
