Japanese shipping major Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has taken delivery of Marvel Pelican, a 155,000 cbm liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier, from compatriot shipbuilder Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI).

Prior to its delivery, the ship was named at KHI’s Sakaide Shipyard on November 19.

As informed, the 300-meter-long Marvel Pelican is the third of the three newbuilding LNG carriers that will sail under charter contracts signed with Mitsui & Co. in September 2014 and January 2015. The vessels will mainly transport LNG from the Mitsui & Co.-backed Cameron LNG project in the U.S. state of Louisiana.

The 128,917 GT ship is designed to enable passage through the newly expanded Panama Canal and is equipped with four LNG tanks.

According to MOL, the Panama-flagged Marvel Pelican features a dual fuel diesel electric (DFDE) propulsion system which achieves heat efficiency and is more environmentally friendly.
