Japanese shipping company, Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), has received the 88 000 DWT coal carrier, CORONA VICTORY, at Marugame Shipyard in Japan.
The CORONA VICTORY joins a fleet of 18 other Corona-series coal carriers, which are designed with wide beams and shallow drafts, making them suitable to enter port facilities at Japanese coal-fired power plants.
The Corona series was developed exclusively by K Line and had developed into a standard for thermal coal shipping in Japan.
