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.
