Freesia Leader, the fifth LNG-fuelled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) operated by NYK, has arrived at the Port of Nagoya in Aichi Prefecture.
The vessel got LNG fuel from Kaguya, an LNG-bunkering ship managed by Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation, a joint venture owned by NYK and other firms, after landing in Nagoya.
China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) Co. Ltd. built the third of four LNG-fuelled PCTCs.
In the intention of realising and passing on a thriving global environment through eco-friendly transportation, the new PCTC was named after the freesia flower.
More recently, NYK Bulkship (Atlantic) N.V. (NBAtlantic), a NYK Group firm, installed a wind-assisted ship-propulsion unit on a bulk carrier with Cargill International S.A. (Switzerland), a subsidiary of Cargill, Incorporated (US).
