Mitsui OSK Lines delivers LNG carrier
Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) recently delivered a newbuild LNG tanker named Marvel Eagle.
The vessel is the first of three newbuilding LNG carriers for which MOL and Mitsui and Co signed charter contracts in September 2014 and January 2015.
Its main assignment will be transporting LNG from the Mitsui and Co-backed Cameron LNG project in the US state of Louisiana.
Built at the Sakaide shipyard of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Marvel Eagle is the first MOL-built vessel equipped with the ship operation data collection device. Detailed voyage and engine data on actual voyages will be collected from the vessel during operation and stored in a cloud-based data platform to develop applications.
The vessel has a length of 299.99 metres, a width of 48.9 metres, a draught of 11.8 metres, a cargo tank capacity of 155,000 cubic metres, and a speed of 19.5 knots.
