Trans Pacific’s LNG Newbuild Officially Named

A new LNG vessel ordered by Trans Pacific Shipping Ltd., a joint venture company comprising Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK), Chubu Electric Power Co. Inc., and the Mitsubishi Corporation, was named on September 5 at the Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd.


At the ceremony, Toshio Mita, chairman of Chubu Electric Power, named the ship Seishu Maru, and his wife cut the ceremonial rope holding the vessel in place. NYK chairman Koji Miyahara was also in attendance.

The vessel’s name is derived from the old name for the north and central parts of Mie prefecture, where Chubu Electric Power’s LNG terminals are located.

After delivery, Seishu Maru will be shared by NYK, MC, and Chubu Electric Power, and used to transport LNG for Australia and North America projects.
