MOL Names New LNG Vessels for Tokyo Gas
Japanese transport major Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) named two newbuilding LNG carriers for the provider of natural gas Tokyo Gas at the Tsu shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU).
The newbuilding LNG tankers named as Energy Innovator and Energy Universe are the 10th and 11th LNG carriers that Tokyo LNG Tanker owns and manages.
MOL is involved in the management of eight of those ships, including the two newbuilding carriers.
The two vessels will transport LNG from the Cove Point LNG Project in the United States to Tokyo Gas, said a press release.
Both vessels have a length of 299.9 meters, breadth of 48.9 meters and an 11.5-meter draft.
Among the many guests on hand for the ceremony was Tokyo Gas President Takashi Uchida, who named the vessels the Energy Innovator and the Energy Universe after which his wife cut the rope.
Leveraging its accumulated experience and knowledge as one of the world's leading LNG carrier owners and management companies, MOL continues to offer safe, high-quality and efficient LNG transport service to customers.
