Imabari Shipbuilding Hands Over ‘Corona Splendor’ Coal Carrier (Japan)

Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (Japan) yesterday delivered an 88,000 DWT-type special coal carrier, the CORONA SPLENDOR to Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line).

CORONA SPLENDOR, delivered from the Marugame Shipyard, is same type as “K” Line’s specialized fleet for transport of thermal coal known as the “Corona-series”.

The Corona-series, which “K” Line originated and continues to develop, 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 Stations to discharge cargo.

With this new latest deployment, the Corona-series has consisted of 17 carriers.
