Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) and PT MCS International (MCSI) have established a new joint-venture LNG carrier manning company in Indonesia.
The joint venture intends to start operations in April 2024 and will primarily assign sailors to the MOL Group’s fleet of LNG tankers.
According to MOL, the foundation of this new manning organisation intends to contribute to the stable security of seafarers.
It is critical to recruit, train, and retain top-tier seafarers who are trained to manage LNG on vessels transporting LNG.
