On 16 June 2020, the Japanese cruise vessel “Asuka II” which was docked in Yokohama Port, near Tokyo reported a fire onboard its storage area on the top floor.
Japanese shipping major NYK tested the remote navigation of a tugboat, part of the Japanese government’s Sea Trial Project on Remote Control Navigation, which aims to establish necessary requirements for the realization of autonomous ships.
NYK conducted, what it claims to be, the first autonomous navigation trial for a large commercial ship under the Interim Guidelines for Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships by the IMO.
ENGIE, Mitsubishi Corporation and NYK are developing ship to ship LNG bunkering in partnership. The 5,000 cm LNG capacity bunkering vessel, “ENGIE ZEEBRUGGE”, is designed to deliver LNG as a marine fuel to a wide range of operators in the port of Zeebrugge and its vicinity.
NYK are targeting the achievement of “zero emissions” by 2050 and have designed the concept ship NYK Super Eco Ship 2030 as a milestone for 2030.
