MOL Confirms Orders for Mega-Ships


Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has confirmed its intentions to add six 20,150-TEU container ships to its fleet, with two of the vessels to be built in Japan by Imabari Shipbuilding while four will be built in South Korea by Samsung Heavy Industries. All of the 400-meter by 58.8-meter container carriers will make use of MAN B&W G95ME main engines with specifications that will allow them to be converted to operate on LNG at a future date.

The two Japanese-built vessels will be owned by Japan’s Shoei Kisen Kaisha, which is associated with Imabari Shipbuilding, and will operate under long-term charters. All will be delivered before the end of 2017 and will operate between Asia and Europe via the Suez canal.
