Central LNG Shipping Japan Corporation (CLS), has ordered a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering vessel at Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI). 

CLS is a joint venture between Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Chubu Electric Power, Toyota Tsusho Corporation, and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, established in May to own the LNG bunkering vessel.

The LNG bunkering vessel, which is scheduled to be delivered around September to December 2020, will become the first such vessel to be operated in Japan.

The four companies jointly established CLS and Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation (CLMF) to launch the LNG bunkering business in the Chubu (central) region of Japan.

Central LNG Shipping Japan Corporation will not only own the bunkering vessel but will also manage it, while the LNG will be supplied to end-users through CLMF.
