A naming ceremony was held on 22 April at the shipyard, with guests including Ikuhiro Ochi, President/Managing Director of the shipowner. Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Managing Executive Officer Tsuneo Watanabe, who named the vessel, and Astomos Energy Corporation Senior Managing Director Tatsuhiko Yamazaki, who cut the rope.
