On July 31st, the LNG carrier LNG Schneeweisschen, jointly ordered by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) and Itochu Corporation, was delivered at the Okpo shipyard by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. (DSME) in South Korea. The ship has entered into a Transportation Service contract for several voyages with Uniper Global Commodities SE, 100% owned by one of the largest European gas and electricity companies, Uniper SE.

The 297.9m LNG Schneeweisschen features two new technologies – the slow-speed two-stroke dual-fuel engine (X-DF) made by Winterthur Gas & Diesel, which can run on natural gas, MGO and Heavy Fuel Oil, and takes main engines efficiency to the next level; and the Methane Refrigeration System-Full Re-liquefaction (MRS-F) by DSME, which works with the high-efficiency X-DF engine to re-liquefy surplus boil off gas and returning it as LNG to the cargo tank. Both X-DF and MRS-F technologies will make LNG transport more efficient and economical.
