Kawasaki Shipbuilding Corporation delivered the LNG Carrier, Taitar No. 2to NiMiC No. 2 S.A. The carrier is the 11th in a line of internationally acclaimed 145,000 m3 LNG carriers boasting state-of-the-art facilities developed by Kawasaki Shipbuilding.

The vessel has four Moss spherical tanks that hold a total of 145,364 m3 of LNG. It also features excellent thermal insulation performance with the Kawasaki Panel System, which achieves a boil-off rate of 0.15 percent per day. The cargo tanks are protected against direct damage by double hulls and double bottoms.

Other features of the 289.50 m long ship include a computer-controlled navigation system integrated into the wheelhouse to improve operability and a 360° view window that enables single-operator oceangoing navigation. The control room, positioned for the best view of the cargo areas, is also equipped with an integrated monitoring and control system (IMCS) that monitors and controls the cargo-handling operations and engine conditions. These superior operability features were all adopted at the suggestion of ship operators during the development stage.
