Japanese shipping giant Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has taken delivery of a 88,000 dwt coal carrier from compatriot shipbuilder Imabari Shipbuilding in Marugame.

Named Corona Citrus, the vessel was delivered on September 11 for electric utility Electric Power Development Co. Ltd.

The new Corona coal carrier will be principally involved in carrying thermal coal to thermal power plants for the company.

Corona Citrus is equipped with WAD (Weather Adapted Duct) in front of the propeller which promotes her propeller efficiency and Hybrid Fin behind the propeller which accelerates energy savings, said the company.

It has the latest ecological technology such as ballast water management system which protects marine ecosystems, and SOx Scrubber which eliminates sulfur oxides from exhaust gas of engine and enables her to comply with the Global regulation of SOx starting from January, 2020.

The Corona-series of epoch-making coal carriers is equipped with wide beam and shallow draft, which are the most suitable type to enter ports of Japanese Thermal Power Stations to discharge cargo, according to K Line.
