JMU Names New LNG Carrier for MOL, Tokyo Gas

Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU) held a naming ceremony for a newbuilding liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier at its Tsu Shipyard on October 16.

Named Energy Liberty, the 165,000m3 vessel is jointly owned by Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and Tokyo LNG Tanker, a subsidiary of Tokyo Gas. It will be the eighth LNG carrier owned and managed by Tokyo LNG Tanker.

MOL will directly manage six of those vessels, including the latest newbuilding.

After delivery, the 299.9-meter-long carrier will transport LNG from the Cove Point Project in the US to Tokyo Gas facilities.

The Japan-flagged vessel features a tri fuel diesel electric propulsion system and a self-supporting prismatic shape IMO Type B (SPB) cargo tank.
