Mitsubishi Shipbuilding bags new LNG FGSS gig from Imabari

Japan’s Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, a unit of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, has received a new order from compatriot Imabari Shipbuilding for LNG fuel gas supply systems.

Mitsubishi said in a statement on Wednesday the FGSS units for 2 LNG-fueled bulk carriers to be built by Imabari Shipbuilding will be continuously delivered with LNG fuel tanks from summer 2025.

Also, the systems feature an optimized cargo space layout utilizing a modular design, shortened construction schedule at shipyards, and a proprietary control system, it said.

Mitsubishi did not reveal the price tag of the contract or any other information.

The firm previously received orders for a total of 18 high-pressure FGSS units, including units for “Sweet Pea Leader” and “Daisy Leader“, both of which are LNG-fueled car carriers built by Imabari and have already entered into service respectively in October 2023 and in March 2024.

These two LNG-powered PCTCs are owned by Japan’s NYK Line.

With this additional order, Mitsubishi will supply a total 20 units, including 15 car carriers and 5 bulk carriers, to Imabari, it said.

It received the first order for FGSS for LNG-fueled car carriers from Imabari in 2021.

Last year, Mitsubishi secured an order from Imabari for 12 systems.
