MOL President & CEO Junichiro Ikeda announced the delivery of the LNG carrier Marvel Pelican on the 13 December.

Before the delivery, on November 19, the Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. President: Yoshinori Kanehana held a naming ceremony at the Sakaide Shipyard of KHI. As a crowd of VIPs and well-wishers looked on, the vessel was named the Marvel Pelican by Mitsui & Co. President & CEO: Tatsuo Yasunaga.

The Marvel Pelican is the third of the three newbuilding LNG carriers that will sail under charter contracts signed with Mitsui & Co. in September 2014 and January 2015. The vessels will mainly transport LNG from the Mitsui & Co.-backed Cameron LNG project in the US state of Louisiana.

The Marvel Pelican is equipped with DFDE (Dual Fuel Diesel Electric) propulsion system. This system achieves heat efficiency, and is a more environmentally friendly, economically superior design than a normal Steam Turbine propulsion system.

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, as one of the world's largest LNG carrier owners and management companies, will further deepen and develop its relationship with Mitsui & Co., and will continue to utilise its accumulated experience, know-how, and network to accurately identify customers' needs of LNG procurement and proactively provide safe and high-quality LNG transportation services.
