Japan’s shipping major Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has expanded its fleet as it took delivery of the 311,000 dwt very large crude carrier (VLCC) Kisogawa on November 15.

The newbuilding, which was constructed by China’s Nantong Cosco KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS), features a length of 339 meters and a beam of 60 meters.

K Line informed that the ship achieves low fuel consumption, about 20% reduction compared with the company’s conventional VLCC, by removing Bulbus Bow, “applying ultra-long stroke slow speed main diesel engine and highly-efficient large diameter propeller.”

The Panama-flagged ship is classed by the classification society ABS. The 161,486 gross ton Kisogawa has a tank capacity of 350,337 m3.
