Liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier to be owned NYK and Kansai Electric Power (Kepco) has been named at Kawasaki Heavy Industries’ Sakaide shipyard. 

The vessel, named LNG Sakura is the first vessel to be co-owned between NYK (30 percent) and KEPCO (70 percent).

Once delivered, the vessel with a capacity to transport 177,000 cubic meters of the chilled fuel will be used to transport LNG sourced from shale gas fields in North America and various other locations, in a 20-year charter agreement.

NYK noted that with its transport capacity, LNG Sakura has the largest moss-type tank in the industry and also features a duel-fuel diesel-electric propulsion engine.
