NYK’s fourth LNG-fuelled pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) ‘Wild Rose Leader’ has received the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering on its first visit to the ports of Nagoya and Yokkaichi on May 15 for the first time.

Wild Rose Leader is the second of four vessels to be delivered from China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) and was given the name of a flower to emphasise NYK’s desire for its LNG-fuelled PCTCs to contribute to a healthy global environment through environment-friendly transportation.

The vessel received LNG fuel from Kaguya, an LNG bunkering ship operated by Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation, which is a joint venture owned by NYK and other partners. This was the first ship-to-ship LNG bunkering to occur at Nagoya port.

The ship loaded vehicles and equipment handled by Isewan Terminal Service at Nagoya and vehicles made by Honda at the port of Yokkaichi.

The 71,846gt Wild Rose Leader is 199.9m long, and has capacity for 7010 units.
