New Forestal Gaia Enters Service

Tokyo-based Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (“K” Line) took delivery of Forestal Gaia woodchip carrier from Tsuneishi Shipbuilding on May 24, 2017.

Forestal Gaia is in a dedicated service to Nippon Paper Industries for carrying woodchips for paper materials.

The vessel sailed on the same day for Dung Quat Port, Vietnam as her maiden voyage.

The 49,800 dwt Forestal Gaia inherited her name from a predecessor which was also engaged in service to Nippon Paper Industries.

The 200-meter-long vessel has six hatch openings and a holding capacity of 3.6 million cft.
