Japan: Nagoya port enters milestone with first STS LNG bunkering op

17 May 2023

Shipping company NYK Line on Tuesday (16 May) said its fourth LNG-fuelled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) participated in the first ship-to-ship (STS) LNG bunkering operation at the Port of Nagoya, Japan.

Wild Rose Leader received LNG fuel from Kaguya, an LNG bunkering ship operated by Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation, which is a joint venture owned by NYK and other partners.

The PCTC entered the port of Nagoya on 10 May and Yokkaichi on May 15 for the first time.

Wild Rose Leader is the second of four vessels to be delivered from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) Co. Ltd. and was given the name of a flower to reflect NYK’s desire for its LNG-fuelled PCTCs to be an environment-friendly transportation.
