New Coal Carrier Joins NYK Group

Japan’s shipping company NYK Group has taken delivery of a new coal carrier, the 56,825 gross ton Isuzu Maru, from its compatriot shipbuilder Oshima Shipbuilding.

The 249-mete-long and 43-meter-wide ship, which was handed over on April 14, will be operated by NYK Group’s Singapore-based subsidiary NYK Bulkship (Asia).

NYK said that the new coal carrier will be deployed to transport coal for coal and mineral company JERA Trading Singapore, a subsidiary of the Japanese electric power company JERA.

The 100,165 dwt Isuzu Maru will transport coal mainly from Australia and Indonesia to Chubu Electric Power’s Hekinan thermal power station, which is located in Hekinan city, Aichi prefecture, in Japan.

Compared to the standard 70,000 dwt Panamax bulk carrier, the new Isuzu Maru has a wider beam and a shallower draft to improve transportation efficiency, according to NYK Group.
