ABS and MOL sign MOU to build up to 14 next-generation gas carriers

ABS, a leading global provider of classification and technical advisory services to the marine and offshore industries, and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. (MOL) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on up to 14 new gas carriers.

The agreement covers seven new-build Very Large Ethane Carriers (VLEC) and up to seven new-build Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers (LNGC) designed to carry gas from the US to China and other global markets.

ABS will provide plan review, survey, inspection and other classification services for vessels, machinery and equipment as well as assist with managing the requirements for foreign flag carriers calling at US terminals.

ABS has extensive experience with the full scope of gas-related assets and has been the classification organization of choice for some of the most advanced gas carriers in service.
