NYK, Mitsubishi take delivery of Cameron LNG vessel

South Korea’s Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries delivered on Tuesday a 174,000-cbm LNG carrier to a joint venture consisting of NYK and Mitsubishi Corp.

The Diamond Gas Metropolis will transport LNG from the US Cameron project in Louisiana, as well as from other locations around the world.

The 297 meters long vessel goes on a long-term charter with Mitsubishi’s unit Diamond Gas International while NYK will be responsible for ship management.

Diamond Gas Metropolis features WinGD’s dual-fuel slow-speed diesel engine that can operate on marine gas oil or boil off gas stored in the cargo tank.

The vessel also has a re-liquefaction system that can use re-liquefied excess boil-off gas and return it to the cargo tank.
