Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) announced that three group companies have received “2019 High Performing Operators” Awards from the Australian Maritime Safety Administration (AMSA) (Note 1).
- MOL Ship Management Co., Ltd. (MOLSHIP)
- MOL Ship Management (Singapore) Pte Ltd. (MOLSHIP(S))
- MOL LNG Transport Co., Ltd. (MOLLNG)
The award, introduced in 2019, targets ship management companies that received AMSA ship inspections more than 10 times per year and recognizes vessels that scored above a designated level on the inspections.
This time, 21 ship management companies whose vessels calling in Australia received the award, including the three above-mentioned MOL Group ship management companies. The awards recognize the companies’ efforts to appropriately maintain and manage vessels, ensure that crewmembers master equipment and facilities, and appropriately meet requirements for certificates of operations.
As MOL forges ahead to become the world leader in safe operation, it continually strives to contribute to marine safety and global environmental protection as a synergistic, sustainable company that grows in harmony with society.
The Australian Maritime Safety Administration (AMSA) is an Australian statutory authority, responsible mainly for safety at sea, protection of the marine environment, and search and rescue activities at sea and in the air. AMSA visits foreign-registry vessels calling in Australia, ensuring vessel safety by ordering mandatory corrective measures if the vessels do not meet the standards established by international treaties.
