 Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) announced that 15 MOL-operated / managed vessels won commendations from the commanders of the 3rd and 5th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters of Japan Coast Guard (JCG).

 
To mark Japan Hydrography Day (September 12), the commanders of the Regional Coast Guard Headquarters presented testimonials to individuals and organizations that have contributed to marine information services (assisting with research related to the sea and marine information). 
 
This year, MOL's vessels won praise for their significant contributions to the coast guard's marine information services by providing observed data on seawater temperature and oceanic currents over many years, and 15 of them were selected for the commendation.
 
Marine information provided by merchant vessels helps the JCG Hydrographic and Oceanographic Department, which collects marine information on ocean currents and tidal currents and various other information, provide navigation-related information to vessels calling at ports in Japan.
 
MOL Managing Executive Officer Masanori Kato was on hand for a September 12 commendation ceremony at the 3rd Regional Coast Guard Headquarters, and received a testimonial from the commander of the 3rd Regional Coast Guard Headquarters.
 
MOL takes a comprehensive approach to providing marine information services and contributing to safe ocean transport and environmental conservation in synergistic and sustainable way.
