MOL’s newbuilt LNG carrier to serve Cameron LNG
Published by Will Owen,
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. has announced the delivery of the LNG carrier Marvel Heron.
Prior to the vessel’s delivery, on 30 August, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. held a naming ceremony at the Nagasaki Shipyard Koyagi Plant of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. As a crowd of VIPs and well-wishers looked on, the vessel was named Marvel Heron by Mitsui & Co., Ltd. Executive Managing Officer Yoshio Kometani.
The Marvel Heron is the second of the three newbuilding LNG carriers, that will sail under charter contracts signed with Mitsui & Co. in September 2014 and January 2015. The vessels will mainly transport LNG from the Mitsui & Co. backed Cameron LNG project in Louisiana, USA.
The Marvel Heron adopts the hybrid dual-shaft steam turbine and gas engine (STaGE) propulsion system. This is an environment-friendly, economically superior design, which achieves further reduction in fuel costs while minimising CO2 emissions.
