New VLCC Giant Handed Over to K Line

VLCC Tedorigawa

Japan’s shipping major Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) took delivery of its newest very large crude carrier, the 311,000 dwt Tedorigawa.

The unit was constructed by China’s shipbuilder Nantong Cosco KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS) and handed over to its owner on June 4.

Featuring a length of 339.5 meters and a beam of 60 meters, the Panama-flagged mammoth has 161,483 gross tons.

K Line said that the vessel achieves low fuel consumption, about 20% less compared with the company’s conventional VLCCs, by removing Bulbus Bow, applying ultra-long stroke slow speed main diesel engine and highly-efficient large diameter propeller.

According to data provided by VesselsValue, the unit has a market value of USD 78.9 million.
