Daisy Leader joins NYK’s expanding LNG-fueled RORO fleet

Daisy Leader, NYK's latest LNG-fueled RORO vessel, sailed into European waters on her maiden voyage this month.

NYK will introduce a total of 20 new LNG-fueled RORO vessels by 2028 as a bridge-solution to achieve net-zero emissions of greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2050 for the NYK Group's oceangoing businesses.

Like NYK's other LNG-fueled RORO fleet, the vessel was named after flowers with the desire to realize and pass on a healthy global environment through environment-friendly transportation.

NYK has established "Sail GREEN" as the company’s brand to emphasize NYK's efforts to reduce GHG emissions through the transport of goods and contribute to the eco-friendly supply chains of customers, regardless of the mode of transport (e.g., by sea or land, through terminals, etc.). Completion of this vessel is an initiative of that brand.

NYK's Agent, ICO NV (Bert Adriansens) together with Port Authorities (Jan Bosmans & Pepijn De Vreese from PoAB) handed over a plaque to the Master to celebrate the maiden call at Zeebrugge.
