“Kaguya”, based at JERA’s Kawagoe Thermal Power Station, will supply LNG fuel to “K” Line’s first LNG-fueled car carrier that is scheduled to be delivered by the end of FY2020.

In the global shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set a goal of halving greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008. With increasing the delivery of LNG fueled vessels that are capable of reducing GHG emissions, “Kaguya” will be having an important role for stable LNG fuel supply.
