NYK Bulkship (Asia) Pte. Ltd., a subsidiary of Japanese NYK Group based in Singapore, has taken delivery of a new 100,000 deadweight tonnage coal carrier at Oshima Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., located in Saikai city, Nagasaki prefecture.
A delivery and naming ceremony was held at the shipyard on September 25th.
The ship, named Tenryu Maru, is the first coal carrier to be jointly owned by a power company and a shipping company. After delivery, the ship will be assigned to transport coal mainly from Australia and Indonesia to power plants operated by Chubu Electric Power.

Commenting on the delivery NYK said: “In accordance with its medium-term management plan, “More Than Shipping 2018,” NYK will continue its efforts to make use of creative solutions to provide stable and economical coal transport.”
