Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. has received an order to build five state-of-the-art 14,000TEU Containerships for Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line).

The order comes from “K” Line’s decision to replace its existing fleet with a new generation of eco-friendly Ultra Large Container Vessels (ULCVs), all in order to strengthen efficiency and cost competitiveness of its Containership Business.

The delivery of the vessels is expected to take place from spring to summer 2015.

Main particulars:

LOA / 366m (approx)

Beam / 51.2m

Depth / 29.9m

Nominal container carrying capacity / 13,870TEU

Imabari Shipbuilding Group has grown to maintain a top share of the Japanese shipbuilding industry and ranks among the leading international ship builders. In May 2011, the company celebrated the birth of its 2,000th vessel, the 180,200 DWT Bulk Carrier M.V. CAPE LILY.
