Naming ceremony held for LNG carrier

Jointly owned Diamond Gas Sakura will transport LNG from Louisiana as part of a long-term time-charter contract.

 

   A naming ceremony was held at the Nagasaki Shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. on Friday for Diamond Gas Sakura, a new liquefied natural gas carrier owned by a joint company established by NYK, Mitsubishi Corp., Toho LNG Shipping Co. Ltd. and Tohoku Electric Power Co. Inc.
    The NYK Group will be responsible for ship management, and after delivery on May 15, the ship will transport LNG from Louisiana for the Cameron LNG project as well as from other locations around the world under a long-term time-charter contract with Diamond Gas International Pte. Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi.
    As with Diamond Gas Orchid and Diamond Gas Rose delivered last year, Diamond Gas Sakura is equipped with a cutting-edge LNG cargo tank structure and propulsion system to allow the ship to realize a highly efficient LNG-carrying capacity as well as reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, the companies said.
    Diamond Gas Sakura is 293.5 meters long and has a cargo tank capacity of 165,000 cubic meters.
   

Not that long ago, it seemed inconceivable that the good times in [U.S.] trucking would end, but here we are back down to Earth. Growth in manufacturing – the most significant driver of trucking activity – has subsided, and residential construction remains stagnant. However, there are some near-term positives, such as lower diesel prices. Also, carriers are responding to flagging demand by ending their hiring spree.

The BMW Group opened a new automotive plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico on June 6 for production of the BMW 3 Series Sedan.
