To mark Japan Hydrography Day (Note 3), the Commandant of the Japan Coast Guard and the Commander of the Regional Coast Guard Headquarters presented testimonials to individuals and organizations that have contributed to marine information services (assisting with research related to the sea and marine information). MOL Group-managed vessels won praise for their significant contributions to the Coast Guard’s marine information services by providing observed data on seawater temperature and oceanic currents over many years, and 17 of them were selected for special recognition.

Marine information provided by merchant vessels helps the JCG Hydrographic and Oceanographic Department, which collects information on ocean currents, tidal currents, and various other data, and in turn provides navigation-related information to vessels calling at ports in Japan.

MOL continually takes a comprehensive approach to providing marine information services and contributing to safe ocean transport and environmental conservation in a synergistic and sustainable way.

(*1) Commendation from Commandant of Japan Coast Guard: Targets vessels that have provided marine information for more than six years up to the present, and submitted more than a specified number of reports.

(*2) Commendation from Commander of Regional Japan Coast Guard Headquarters: Targets vessels that have provided marine information for more than three years up to the present, and submitted more than a specified number of reports.

(*3) Japan Hydrography Day, September 12, is derived from the founding of the predecessor of the JCG Hydrographic and Oceanographic Department, on September 12, 1871 (July 28 on the lunar calendar).
