Japanese LNG Carrier Adds to Ocean Studies

Press Release
Thursday, September 13, 2012

NYK LNG carrier 'Broog' recognized by Japan Coast Guard for long-term contribution to oceanography by taking sea-water samples.

Every year on September 12th,  the commandant of the Japan Coast Guard recognizes individuals and organizations that have made contributions to marine information services. An awards ceremony was recently held at the commandant’s room in Tokyo and attended by NYK LNG Shipmanagement Ltd. president Hiroshi Yonezawa.

For many years, NYK Line has provided the Japan Coast Guard with seawater temperatures, thus contributing greatly to the understanding of oceanic conditions.

The information is used by the Japan Coast Guard’s Hydrographic and Oceanographic Department, which is involved in a variety of marine research and information services, such as chart development and responses to marine environmental issues and disasters, including earthquakes.

In previous year, NYK LNG carriers LNG Jamal and Echigo Maru have also been recognized for their contributions.
