Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd and its group company Ferry Sunflower Limited announced plans to construct the first two LNG-fueled ferries in Japan, the Sunflower Kurenai and the Sunflower Murasaki. MOL plans to order the vessels from Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co Ltd in December. Ferry Sunflower will charter the ferries after delivery and launch them on its Osaka-Beppu route from the end of 2022 through the first half of 2023, as replacements for vessels currently in service.

The ferries will be equipped with high-performance dual fuel engines and will provide passengers with comfortable accommodations and reliable schedules. What's more, they will be quieter than current vessels, ensuring smoother, more relaxing travel. The use of LNG fuel will achieve excellent environmental performance, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 20% compared to current vessels, and virtually eliminating sulfur oxides emissions.
