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.
