LNG Industry,


Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) has announced the delivery of the LNG carrier Marvel Eagle.

Before the delivery, on 5 September, a naming ceremony was held at the Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. Sakaide Shipyard before a large crowd of onlookers and representatives of the companies involved.

The vessel is the first of three newbuilding LNG carriers, for which MOL and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. signed charter contracts in September 2014 and January 2015. Its main assignment will be transporting LNG from the Mitsui & Co. backed Cameron LNG project in the US state of Louisiana.

The Marvel Eagle is the first vessel equipped with the high-performance ship operation data collection device, which serves as the foundation of the FOCUS project that MOL recently announced and started putting into action. Detailed voyage and engine data on actual voyages will be collected from the vessel during operation and stored in a cloud-based data platform to develop applications.
