On September 16, a naming ceremony was held at the Sakaide Works of Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd for Japan's first LNG bunkering vessel. LBV's name, Kaguya, derives from Princess Kaguya in The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, which is said to be Japan's oldest story and is still loved by many people today. The name also expresses our desire to grow the LNG bunkering market as long and high as a bamboo tree.

Kaguya is the first LNG bunkering vessel to be operated in Japan. Kaguya will be operated by Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation and will be based at JERA's Kawagoe Thermal Power Station. Kaguya will begin supplying LNG fuel* to ships in the Chubu region in October or later this year using Ship-to-Ship bunkering
