MOL & COSCO name new LNG carrier


MITSUI O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has announced that a naming ceremony for a LNG carrier, jointly ordered by MOL and China COSCO Shipping Corporation Ltd (China COSCO Shipping), was held last week at Hu-dong-Zhonghua Shipbuild-ing (Group) Co. (Hudong).

The LNG MERAK is the second of four newbuilding LNG carriers for the Yamal LNG project announced at the end of June 2017, and is the sister vessel of the LNG DUBHE which was delivered at the end of last October in the same ship-yard. LNG MERAK will be engaged in the transport of the project’s LNG from transhipment terminals in Europe to Asia LNG terminals.

MOL has been op-erating 11 LNG carriers built in China for other projects, and LNG MERAK will be the 12th such carrier built in China to join its fleet. The Yamal LNG plant has been producing LNG over nameplate production capac-ity and over 25 million tonnes LNG MERAKof LNG have been shipped since the start-up of Train 1 in December 2017. It has cumu-latively despatched more than 340 cargoes. By taking advan-tage of close cooperation with Hudong and the combined experience, construction of the LNG MERAK processed smoothly. LNG MERAK will contribute to stable and safe LNG transportation from the project to the end-user mar-kets.

MOL is proactive in providing value-added transport services to customers worldwide, utilising its strong re-lationship with China COSCO Shipping and Hu-dong, and leveraging its knowledge and experience in international cooperative works, emphasised a release.
