Tokyo-based Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd (K Line) has announced the delivery of Corona Victory, an 88 000 DWT coal carrier at Imabari Shipbuilding Co. Ltd’s Marugame Shipyard in Japan.
The new coal carrier is the same type as K Line’s specialised fleet that transports thermal coal, known as the Corona series. The Corona series consists of epoch-making coal carriers equipped with wide beam and shallow draft, which are the most suitable type to enter ports of domestic thermal power plants to discharge cargo.
With this new latest deployment, the Corona series now consists of 19 carriers.
