 On October 12th, 2023, “the Emergency Response Exercise” was carried out as a part of training of optimum emergency response prepared for any major maritime accidents. The scenario of the exercise developed that an LNG vessel owned by our subsidiary has run aground in Tokyo Bay while attempting to avoid a fishing vessel suddenly approaching in Uraga Channel. We confirmed a series of emergency response process by setting crisis-management headquarters upon receiving an incident report, establishing communication channel with Ship Management company and conducting a mock press conference at the end of the exercise.


 Contact procedures including with online tools were confirmed as well, and a mock press conference on the accident was held simultaneously in person and online. During the press conference, journalists asked many questions, which made a tense atmosphere as if it were a real one.


 While growing interest on safety and environmental impact reduction over the world, we are preparing for any unexpected circumstances through the “Emergency Response Exercise”. Furthermore, we will continue our commitment to safe operations to contribute to society by providing industry-leading safe and optimal services with putting our customers first.
