MOL & others jointly earn AIP for design of LNG-powered coal carrier

 

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has announced that it, along with Tohoku Electric Power Co., and Namura Shipbuilding Co., have jointly earned an Approval in Principle (AIP) from Lloyd’s Register for the design of an LNG-powered coal carrier.

 

The three companies have moved ahead with this project and recently conducted a Hazard Identification Study (HAZID) and finished the basic design, said a release.

 

This is Japan’s first joint acquisition by three companies — a shipping company, cargo owner and shipbuilder — of an AIP for a vessel powered by LNG. The vessel’s design ensures sufficient cargo capacity without making the hull larger by installing the LNG fuel tank at the stern, among other features, the release added.
