la Pérouse, Jean-François


Jean-François de la Pérouse (1741-1788) was a prominent French explorer.

From 1785, he led a major scientific expedition around the Pacific, visiting Sakhalin Island, Kamchatka Peninsula, and the Kuril Islands.

His name was given to the strait between the islands of Sakhalin and Hokkaido, connecting the Sea of Okhotsk with the Sea of Japan.

SCF La Perouse is a new-generation 174,000-cbm Atlanticmax LNG carrier built to the highest industry standards of safety, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

The vessel features a gas boil-off partial liquefaction system, to minimise the loss of cargo while on a long voyage or awaiting cargo operations.
