According to MOL, the foundation of this new manning organisation intends to contribute to the stable security of seafarers. The joint venture will start operations in April 2024 and will primarily assign sailors to the MOL Group’s fleet of LNG tankers.
In operating vessels transporting LNG, it is essential to recruit, train, and retain top-quality seafarers who are qualified to handle LNG, says MOL. Yet even as the use of LNG expands on the back of growing needs for cleaner energy, the world is facing a shortage of seafarers. The establishment of this new manning company will contribute to stably securing seafarers.
MOL teamed up with the Humpuss Group in 1986 to form PT Humolco LNG Indonesia, a ship management company, and since that time, it has also focused on training Indonesian seafarers.
