Japanese shipping major Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) took delivery of its newest very large crude carrier (VLCC), Tedorigawa.

The 311,000 dwt vessel was built at Nantong Cosco KHI Ship Engineering (NACKS), China and delivered on June 4, 2018.

The Panama-flagged, 161,483 gross tons tanker has a length of 339.5 meters and a beam of 60 meters.

According to K Line, Tedorigawa achieves low fuel consumption (about 20 percent reduction compared with conventional VLCC) by removing the bulbus bow, applying ultra-long stroke slow speed main diesel engine and highly efficient large diameter propeller. The vessel is also equipped with a ballast water treatment system.
