MOL's Newbuilding Woodchip Carrier C.S. Bright Delivered

TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda) today announced the delivery of the new woodchip carrier, C.S. Bright, which has a cargo hold capacity of about 4.3 million cubic feet, at Mizushima Shipyard of Sanoyas Shipbuilding Corporation (President: Takashi Ueda; Head Office: Osaka). Following the delivery ceremony, the vessel left to take on a cargo of wood chips in Australia for Hokuetsu Kishu Paper Co., Ltd. (President and CEO: Sekio Kishimoto; Head Office: Tokyo).

The C.S. Bright was designed with a shallow draft while maximizing cargo hold capacity to allow efficient loading of wood chips, which are lightweight and take up a relatively large amount of space. It also features environmental-friendly specifications to cut CO2 emissions, such as a rudder bulb fin to enhance propulsion efficiency and low-friction ship-bottom paint.

MOL continually strives to offer safe and reliable wood chip transport service for paper companies in Japan and overseas, contributing to a stable supply of resources and energy.
