According to a statement by Mitsubishi, it delivered a fuel gas supply system for high-pressure dual-fuel marine engine to Shin Kurushima at the end of August.

The FGSS ordered by Shin Kurushima feature an optimized cargo space layout utilizing a modular design, a shortened construction schedule at shipyards, and a proprietary control system that can be customized according to customer needs, it said.

Mitsubishi previously received and filled orders for FGSS units for two LNG-fueled car carriers built by Shin Kurushima between 2020 and 2022.

Moreover, NYK also ordered LNG-powered PCTCs at Shin Kurushima as well as K Line.
