Green Award foundation issues LNG certificates for the Japanese Big Three (MOL, K Line and NYK Line)

13 December 2011 marked a milestone for the Green Award Foundation, as it added the LNG divisions of the three biggest shipping companies in Japan to its list of certified companies.

An official ceremony to hand over certificates was held at the head office of Qatargas, in the presence of representatives of the Japanese companies and local industry organizations. The LNG divisions of the three biggest shipping companies in Japan: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, NYK Line and "K" LINE have recently been audited and have successfully obtained their office and ship certificates. The LNG carriers AL ZUBARAH, BROOG and ZEKREET are managed by the “big three” from Tokyo respectively, and are on a long time charter to Qatargas, the world’s largest LNG producing company.

Green Award Foundation has been working for nearly 10 years on increasing the involvement of the Japanese market in the certification scheme and sees this as a major milestone and welcomes these top quality management companies and ships. After a successful first year, the Green Award LNG certification scheme now has 5 ships from 5 different shipping companies and looks forward to welcoming more ships and companies in 2012.
