NYK appoints its first Indonesian chief engineer on LNG carrier

Japan’s shipping giant NYK said it has appointed Tabah Supriyanto as the first Indonesian chief engineer of one of its LNG carriers.

Supriyanto has been a member of the NYK Group since 2008 and served on LNG carriers, according to a statement by NYK.

NYK said it has now appointed him to the position of chief engineer of an LNG carrier that provides transportation services for the BP-led Tangguh LNG project in Indonesia.

The firm said it would continue to train “excellent Indonesian seafarers and contribute to the development of the Tangguh LNG project and, by extension, the Indonesian maritime industry.”

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the valuable opportunity to become the first Indonesian chief engineer of an LNG carrier operated by NYK Group,” Supriyanto said.

Besides this appointment, NYK has also recently named Asep Dadang Kurniawan as the first Indonesian captain of one of its LNG carriers.
