Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has announced the delivery of the coal carrier Oi Maru which will serve JERA Trading.

The 91,211 dwt ship was delivered at Imari Shipyard and Works of Namura Shipbuilding on June 14, 2018.

The vessel, which was jointly developed by Namura Shipbuilding and MOL, is a coal carrier with a wide-beam/shallow-draft configuration and a wide range of advanced safety and energy-saving features, according to MOL.

The vessel is so-called “Hekinan MAX” and has a length of 250 meters to maximize transport volume to the discharging port, Chubu Electric Power’s Hekinan Thermal Power Plant in Aichi, Japan.

The 121,604 cbm vessel, which flies the flag of Liberia, has a market value of USD 31.6 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.

“MOL has operated the same type of vessels, Shin Yahagi Maru and Nagara Maru, since 2015 and 2017, respectively and will play a central role in supplying coal to Chubu Electric Power’s Hekinan Thermal Power Plant by operating three “Hekinan MAX” coal carriers,” the company said.
