MOL earlier ordered Japan’s first LNG-fuelled ferries. To be named SUNFLOWER KURENAI and SUNFLOWER MURASAKI, the 17,300grt pair will be operated by MOL subsidiary Ferry Sunflower on its Osaka-Beppu route. The 763-passenger and 136 thirteen-metre trailer capacity vessels will be built by Mitsubishi’s Shimonoseki shipyard for delivery at the end of 2022 and during the first half of 2023.
Besides its move towards LNG-fuelled vessels, MOL is also to introduce biofuel-powered vessels and is continuing its research into the use of ammonia and other next-generation fuels.
