The newbuilding will have a maximum deadweight of 100,000 tons, the shipbuilder said.

As informed, the new ship will comply with the third NOx regulation, reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by approximately 80 percent, compared to the first regulation.

The order follows a consecutive voyage charter agreement K Line recently signed with Kobe Steel. Under the 15-year agreement which is scheduled to commence in 2021, K Line will be transporting coal for power generation to Kobe Steel’s coal-fired power plant in Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture.

What is more, another Japanese shipping company, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) entered into a 20-year consecutive voyage charter agreement with Kobe Steel. NYK Line’s 98,500 dwt ship will also feature nitrogen oxides control technology and will be transporting coal to Kobe City. The newbuild is under construction at Oshima Shipbuilding yard and is slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2021.
