Al Bidda Named Best Ship

Monday, March 06, 2006
Qatargas has chosen its LNG carrier Al Bidda for the Best Ship Award, which it has instituted to assess its fleet of ten vessels, which are on a long-term charter for supply of gas to Japan. Al Bidda is owned by Mitsui OSK Line and its captain H Yoshimara received the award from Qatargas head of shipping operations Anthony Browning. Qatargas said the inspection format was thorough and intensive in order to establish whether a LNG vessel was of a sufficiently high standard to be invited to load at the Qatargas LNG Berth. The vessels were tested for their compliance with port, terminal and international regulations concerned, health and safety, on board innovations to promote safety and environmental awareness as well as quality control.
