Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) has announced that a naming ceremony for two newbuilding LNG carriers was recently held at the Tsu Shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation.
The two vessels will transport LNG from the Cove Point LNG project in the US to Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd.
Among the many guests on hand for the ceremony was Tokyo Gas President Takashi Uchida, who named the vessels the Energy Innovator and the Energy Universe after which his wife cut the rope.
The vessels are the 10th and 11th LNG carriers that Tokyo LNG Tanker Co., Ltd. owns and manages. MOL is involved in the management of eight of those ships, including the two newbuilding carriers.
Leveraging its accumulated experience and knowledge as one of the world’s leading LNG carrier owners and management companies, MOL continues to offer safe, high-quality and efficient LNG transport service to customers.
