Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) has announced the delivery of the LNG carrier Marvel Pelican.
Prior to the delivery, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI) held a naming ceremony at the Sakaide Shipyard of KHI. As a crowd of VIPs and well-wishers looked on, the vessel was named the Marvel Pelican by Mitsui & Co., Ltd. Senior Executive Managing Officer Hirotatsu Fujiwara.
