MOL Takes Delivery of LNGC
Japanese shipowner Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) December 13 announced the delivery of the LNG carrier Marvel Pelican.
The Marvel Pelican is the third of three newbuild LNG carriers that will sail under charter contracts signed with Mitsui & Co. The vessels will mainly transport LNG from the Mitsui & Co.-backed Cameron LNG project in the US state of Louisiana, MOL said.
Before the delivery, on November 19, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, held a naming ceremony at the Sakaide Shipyard. The vessel is equipped with a DFDE (dual fuel diesel electric) propulsion system, MOL said. “This system achieves heat efficiency, and is a more environment-friendly, economically superior design than normal steam turbine propulsion system,” it added.
