Mitsubishi Shipbuilding to Construct Japan’s First Methanol-Fueled RoRo Ships

Joyofuji Shipping and Fukuju Shipping have each commissioned a methanol-powered RoRo ship from Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, marking the first of their kind to be built in Japan.

These ships, set for delivery by the end of fiscal 2027, will each have the capacity to carry 2,300 cars. The dual-fuel vessels will measure 169.9 meters in length, feature a windshield, and will be used for domestic operations.

The cost of the two ships has not been disclosed.

Methanol is emerging as a leading alternative fuel in the newbuild segment. In the first five months of 2024 alone, 70 new orders for methanol-fueled vessels have been placed, accounting for 55% of all new orders for alternative-fueled vessels this year, according to class society DNV.
