The NYK-operated and managed LNG carrier LNG Flora has been recognised by the commandant of the Japan Coast Guard for the long-term contribution the LNG carrier has made by providing seawater temperatures to the Japan Coast Guard’s Hydrographic and Oceanographic Department.
The Japan Coast Guard uses the seawater temperatures in a variety of marine research and information services, such as chart development and responses to marine environmental issues and disasters, including earthquakes.
An award ceremony was held at the commandant’s room in Tokyo, Japan, on 12 September. The award ceremony was attended by NYK LNG Shipmanagement Ltd. president Hiroshi Yonezawa, as a representative of NYK concerned parties.
Back in 2012, the NYK-managed LNG carrier Broog was also recognised for its contributions.
