MOL to build four additional 7,000-unit capacity LNG-fuelled car carriers at local shipyards

10 May 2022

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) on Monday (9 May) said it has reached an agreement with Nihon Shipyard Co., Ltd. and Shin Kurushima Dockyard Co., Ltd. to build four 7,000-unit capacity car carriers using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as their main bunker fuel. 

The vessels will be the second series following four LNG-fuelled car carriers announced in August 2021, which are slated for delivery in 2024. 

The newly ordered ships are scheduled for delivery between 2024 to 2025, says MOL. 

This will bring the company’s total orders for LNG-fuelled car carriers to eight. 

In June 2021, MOL established “MOL Group Environmental Vision 2.1” as a guide to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050. 

The company plans to launch about 90 LNG-fuelled vessels by 2030, under its strategy calling for “Adoption of Clean Alternative Fuels”.
