The unit, which features a length of 293 meters and a beam of 48.9 meters, was named Enshu Maru at Kawasaki Heavy Industries’ Sakaide Shipyard.

Under the operation of LNG Marine Transport, the vessel will mainly service the transportation route between Freeport LNG project in the US and Japan following its delivery.

Enshu Maru has a tank capacity of 164,700 cbm and a boil off rate of 0.08% per day. Its propulsion system includes a reheat steam turbine, described by K Line as the next-generation LNG carrier propulsion plant of high thermal efficiency and high reliability.

The new ship is expected to contribute to stable transportation of energy for Japan, according to K Line.
