Japanese shipping firm Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has taken delivery of a 91,000 dwt-type special coal carrier, the Corona Dynamic.

Handed over from Oshima Shipbuilding on July 11, the vessel is of the same type as K Line’s specialized fleet for transport of thermal coal known as the Corona-series.

The Corona-series consists of epoch-making coal carriers equipped with wide beam and shallow draft, which are the most suitable type to enter ports of Japanese thermal power stations to discharge cargo.

Featuring a length of 234.99 meters and a beam of 43 meters, the Corona Dynamic is equipped with energy-saving and ecological technology, such as the Advanced Flipper Fins and Rudder Bulb which promote propeller efficiency, as well as a ballast water management system.

Corona Dynamic will be principally involved in long-term service carrying thermal coal to Hokuriku Electric Power Company’s thermal power plant.
