Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. has announced that on 31 July, the LNG carrier, LNG Schneeweisschen, jointly ordered by MOL and Itochu Corporation was delivered at the Okpo shipyard by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. (DSME) in South Korea.

The ship has subsequently been entered into a transportation service contract for several voyages with Uniper Global Commodities.

The LNG Schneeweisschen features two new technologies – the slow-speed two-stroke engine (X-DF) made by Winterthur Gas & Diesel, which can run on natural gas, MGO, and Heavy Fuel Oil, and takes main engines efficiency to the next level; and the Methane Refrigeration System-Full Re-liquefaction (MRS-F) by DSME, which works with the high-efficiency X-DF engine to re-liquefy surplus boil off gas and returning it as LNG to the cargo tank. Both X-DF and MRS-F technologies will make LNG transport more efficient and economical.
