Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) gets orders to carry out repair & conversion of the liners 'Nippon Maru' & 'Fuji Maru'.

MHI has received orders from Mitsui O.S.K. Passenger Line, Ltd. (MOPAS) and Nippon Charter Cruise, Ltd. (NCC) for repair and conversion work on the Nippon Maru and Fuji Maru, respectively. The work will be performed at MHI's Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works in Kanagawa Prefecture between mid-December and the end of January 2013.

The repair and conversion work on the two ships will be carried out in line with the medium- to long-range maintenance plans of MOPAS and NCC, respectively, to ramp up ship safety and passenger comfort. Earlier, the Yokohama Dockyard undertook a major conversion of the Nippon Maru in 2010. Under the new orders, work on the Fuji Maru will take place from December 14 through 26 and on the Nippon Maru from January 15 through 27. In the latter instance, besides periodical mandated inspection, work will also be performed to boost energy savings and passenger service, including installation of LED lighting and upgrading of galley facilities. 



Both ships were built at MHI's Kobe Shipyard & Machinery Works. The Fuji Maru, which went into service in 1989, was the first cruise ship manufactured in Japan in the postwar era. The 23,235 gross tonnage (GT), 167m (meter) long and 24m wide ship has 163 cabins. The Nippon Maru, the third ship so named, went into operation in 1990; it has 202 cabins and features a 166.65m long, 24m wide hull with 22,472 GT.
