K Line celebrates latest Corona series coal carrier

Described by the Japan shipping line as “epoch-making coal carriers”, the Corona class vessels are equipped with wide beam and shallow draught, making them suitable for entering the ports of Japanese thermal power stations to discharge cargo.


CORONA CITRUS is equipped with WAD (Weather Adapted Duct) in front of her propeller, which promotes propeller efficiency, and Hybrid Fin behind the propeller, which accelerates energy-savings.


She also has the latest ecological technology such as ballast water management system to protect marine ecosystems, and an SOx scrubber to eliminate sulphur oxides from engine exhaust gasses and to enable her to comply with new global sulphur emmison regulations that start from January 2020.


The CORONA CITRUS will be principally involved in carrying thermal coal to power plants operated by Electric Power Development Co Ltd.
