Our associated businesses are the fruits of the MOL spirit: "Creating business from business."

Safely Escorting Large Vessels, Ships Loaded with Hazardous Cargoes

The MOL Group's tugboat business supports vessels in arriving and leaving port, berthing and unberthing, avoiding hazards, and other operations.
In recent years, as LNG has gained wider adoption as a clean energy source, transport volume has shown a steady increase.
New LNG terminals have gone into service one after another, and increasing LNG vessel traffic underscores the need for enhance - ments in tugboat operation capacity, from the standpoints of both quality and quantity.
Through a group company, MOL is working to precisely address these needs, and help protect the environment by introducing a succession of advanced tugboats, starting with an LNG-fueled vessel (slated for launching in April 2019). At the same time, we are working to improve the maintenance of equipment and instruments and upgrade the skills of crewmembers with enhance safety training with the goal of efficient, accident-free operation.
