Japanese ship owner Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has received its second Corona-class coal carrier in a single month.

The 88,000 dwt Corona Zenith was handed over to K Line by Imabari Shipbuilding’s Marugame Shipyard on July 25.

The other unit in the class delivered this month, Corona Dynamic, was built by Oshima Shipbuilding.

The Corona-series have a wide beam and a shallow draft, making them suitable to enter ports of domestic thermal power stations to discharge cargo.

Featuring a length of 229.9 meters and a beam of 38 meters, the Corona Zenith has a full draft of 13.9 meters.

The July 25 delivery brought the number of Corona-series ships in K Line’s fleet to 22.
