Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) named two newbuilding LNG carriers for Tokyo Gas at the Tsu shipyard of Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU).
The two vessels will transport LNG from the Cove Point LNG project in the United States to Tokyo Gas, MOL said in its statement on Thursday.
The vessels named Energy Innovator and Energy Universe are the 10th and 11th LNG carriers that Tokyo LNG Tanker owns and manages.
MOL is involved in the management of eight of those ships, including the two newbuilding carriers, the company said.
Both vessels have a length of 299.9 meters, breadth of 48.9 meters and an 11.5-meter draft.
Both vessels are capable of transporting up to 165,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel and feature tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion systems.
