"K" Line Opts for More Next Generation Car Carriers

Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line) has reached the decision to order four additional new next generation car carrier vessels.

The order will follow “K” Line’s recent identical 4-vessel shipbuilding contracts placed with Shin Kurushima Dockyard Co. Ltd and Japan Marine United Corporation.

In total, each company will be building four new “K” Line next generation car carriers, respectively, with delivery starting in 2015 and continuing through the first quarter of 2017.

By adding this series of eight new ships with better stability of the vessel and better fuel efficiency, “K” Line continues to deliver value added efficiency and capability of handling an even wider variety of cargo mix to assure that the company’s services successfully meet the needs of its customers in order to be best suited for not only passenger cars but also other RORO cargoes.
