Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) named its new LNG carrier, the Marvel Falcon, at the Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje shipyard. 

The vessel, with a 174,000 cubic meters capacity will be under a long-term charter contract with Mitsui & Co, NYK added in its statement.

The ship is the first in a series of new vessels that will be used by Mitsui & Co. in the Cameron LNG project.

It is equipped with an X-DF diesel engine able to operate on marine gas or boil-off gas, NYK said.

After the delivery of Marvel Falcon in April 2018, the ship will begin to transport LNG from the U.S. state of Louisiana and other locations around the world for up to 25 years, including optional extension periods.

The NYK Group will be responsible for ship management, the statement reads.
