Coal Carrier ‘Hokuriku Maru’ Delivered to NYK

A delivery ceremony was held on December 17 for Hokuriku Maru, a specialized coal carrier having a wide beam and shallow draft for the transport of steaming coal from Australia and Indonesia to power plants operated by the Hokuriku Electric Power Company (Hokuriku Denryoku).

A naming ceremony was held at the shipyard on the same day and attended by Hokuriku Denryoku representatives and NYK president Yasumi Kudo, among others.

Hokuriku Maru is the second vessel to have been honored with this name. The original Hokuriku Maru was built in 1995. The port of register is Toyama in the Hokuriku region of Japan, which is where the vessel will be making its port calls.

“The NYK Group will continue its efforts for the steady transport of resources,” NYK said in its press release.
