Work Starts on K Line's LNG Fuelled Car Carrier
Japan’s Imabari Shipbuilding has started building an LNG-fuelled car carrier vessel ordered by Japanese shipping company K Line.
“By building LNG-fueled car carrier vessels, we are actively responding to a wide variety of transportation needs from customers both domestic and overseas, while responding to the growing need for environmental friendliness, and contribute to a sustainable society through high-quality transportation,” K Line said November 28.
K Line had placed the order for the vessel in December last year. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2020, K Line said. The 73, 800 metric ton vessel will have a capacity to load a maximum 7,020 vehicles.
