In another sign of China’s demand for LNG as a cleaner alternative fuel source to coal, Gaztransport & Technigas (GTT), a designer of containment systems used to transport and store LNG, has set up offices in Shanghai.
China’s market for LNG is growing fast as the government tries to limit pollutions caused by coal-fired power plants – a central aim of the country’s 13th Five-Year Plan.
“GTT wants to contribute to the development of LNG as a fuel in the country,” said Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and CEO of GTT. “This is why the company is opening an office in Shanghai.”
Adnan Ezzarhouni, Director of GTT China, officially opened its Shanghai office on 3 June with several officials from Chinese companies in the transport and LNG industries in attendance.
