Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group company Mitsubishi Shipbuilding has launched the ‘Trans Harmony Green’, first of two LNG-powered ro-ro ships under construction for Toyofuji Shipping.

The launch took place at the Enoura Plant of MHI’s Shimonoseki Shipyard and Machinery Works. The ship’s handover is scheduled for late January 2025 following completion of outfitting work and sea trials. The Trans Harmony Green will serve shipping routes in Asia.

The Trans Harmony Green is about 195m in overall length, 30.6m breadth, and has gross tonnage of around 49,500. It can simultaneously transport about 3,000 passenger cars. The ship’s main engine and main generator engine are high-performance dual-fuel engines each accommodating LNG or diesel fuel. Together these engines enable a greater than 25% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to ships with the same hull and powered by fuel oil, cutting SOx emissions to near zero, thereby helping to reduce the vessel’s environmental footprint.
