Mitsubishi Shipbuilding scores LNG FGSS gig from Imabari

Japan’s Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, a unit of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, has received orders from compatriot Imabari Shipbuilding for 12 LNG fuel gas supply systems.

According to a statement by Mitsubishi, the equipment for 9 LNG-fueled car carriers and 3 LNG-fueled bulk carriers built Imabari Shipbuilding Group will be continuously delivered from spring 2024.

Mitsubishi did not provide the price tag of the deal.

It previously received the first order for FGSS for LNG-fueled car carriers from Imabari in 2021, and this is the first order for FGSS for LNG-fueled bulk carriers.

With these new orders, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will supply a total 18 units, including 15 car carriers and 3 bulk carriers to Imabari Shipbuilding, it said.

The shipbuilder already delivered two units.

In addition, for the LNG-fueled car carriers which were ordered this time, Imabari will install LNG fuel tanks currently being manufactured at its Nishi-Tadotsu Division where Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is also providing technical support, the firm said.
