MOL said the new coal carrier will serve Tohoku Electric Power Company, which is headquartered in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture.

The vessel, which was jointly developed by Sanoyas Shipyard and MOL, is a state-of-the-art coal carrier with a wide-beam and shallow-draught, as well as various safety and energy-saving specifications. It is a sister vessel to the AKATSUKI, which was delivered in February of this year.

The vessel takes over the name of the coal carrier that served Tohoku Electric Power for 19 years, and will play a central role in coal transport for its thermal power plants under a new long-term consecutive voyage service contract.
