Central LNG Shipping Japan Corporation (CLS), a joint venture between by Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Chubu Electric Power Co., Toyota Tsusho Corporation, and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, Friday placed an order for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel from Kawasaki Heavy Industries.
The CLS order, which is scheduled to be delivered around September to December 2020, will see the first LNG bunkering vessel to be operated in Japan.
The JV firms for CLS in May also started Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation (CLMF) to launch the LNG Bunkering Business in the Chubu (central) region of Japan.
The LNG bunkering vessel will be owned and managed by CLS, with LNG will be supplied to end-users through CLMF.
