Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has placed an order for a 140,400 dwt coal carrier at its compatriot shipbuilder Imabari Shipbuilding.

The company said that the new vessel, which will be 274 meters long and 47 meters wide, would have environmental and safety features.

MOL did not disclose the price agreed under the shipbuilding contract.

The move comes after the company signed a long-term shipping agreement with Japan’s Sikoku Electric Power.

Scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2020, the new coal carrier would replace the 2000-built bulker Tachibana, which is currently shipping coal cargoes for Sikoku Electric Power.
