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 they manage.
This agreement includes technical assistance for inspection, maintenance, repairs, operations and engineering services, and access to the HEARS® emergency hotline, which enables ship-owners, operators and their crews to contact GTT’s experts 24/7 to respond to operational issues.
Fleet Management is currently supervising the newbuilding of the new generation of Very Large Ethane Carriers (VLEC), under construction in Korea, with deliveries in October 2020 onwards, all equipped with GTT Mark III technology.
Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT, said at this occasion: “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.”
