2nd Hekinan MAX Coal Carrier Joins MOL’s Fleet

Japanese shipping giant Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has taken delivery of the coal carrier Nagara Maru from compatriot Imari Shipyard and Works of Namura Shipbuilding.

The vessel, which will serve Singapore-based JERA Trading, was jointly developed by Namura Shipbuilding and MOL.

The coal carrier pertains to the so-called Hekinan MAX class and features a wide-beam/shallow-draft configuration

The ship’s design specifications include a length of 250 meters aimed at maximizing transport volume to the discharging port, Chubu Electric Power’s Hekinan Thermal Power Plant in Aichi, Japan.

MOL has operated the same type of vessel, Shin Yahagi Maru, since 2015, and with the latest newbuilding MOL will now use two Hekinan MAX coal carriers to supply coal to Chubu Electric Power’s Hekinan Thermal Power Plant.
