New LNG Carrier for NYK, Tokyo Gas Named at JMU Shipyard

Energy Glory, a new LNG carrier for NYK and Tokyo Gas, has been named at the Tsu shipyard, part of Japan Marine United Corporation (JMU), in Japan.

NYK and Tokyo LNG Tanker, a subsidiary of Tokyo Gas, have a long-term charter contract for this vessel.

The 122,800-ton Energy Glory is the third ship to be jointly owned by NYK (30%) and Tokyo LNG Tanker (70%).

Following its delivery, the newbuilding will be mainly used over the next 20 years for LNG transportation from the Cove Point LNG project in the United States.

This new carrier is equipped with an SPB design that allows for robust propulsion and reduced fuel consumption and comes with a tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion system that can use low-sulfur fuel oil. The ship will thus be able to mitigate environmental burdens.

With a cargo tank capacity of 165,000 cubic meters, Energy Glory features a length of 299.9 meters and a width of 48.9 meters. Currently, it has a market value of USD 189.01 million, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
