Toho Gas Co Ltd and Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd announced the implementation of a demonstration test to supply LNG bunkering to the LNG fuelled tugboat Ishin in the Port of Nagoya. This marked the first LNG bunkering in the Port of Nagoya, and the test confirmed that LNG can be safely supplied to vessels at the port. LNG was transported via truck from the Toho Gas Chita-Midorihama LNG Terminal at Chita-shi in Aichi Prefecture and supplied with a truck-to-ship system to Ishin, berthed at the Port of Nagoya's Garden Pier.

Based on the findings of the demonstration test, Toho Gas and MOL will continue working to reduce the environmental impact of the maritime industry by promoting the use of LNG fuel by vessels calling at the Port of Nagoya.
