MOL Orders 2 New Wood Chip Carriers

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today announced that the company has ordered two wood chip carriers from Minaminippon Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. for delivery in 2013. The 3,800,000 cft-class wood chip carriers were jointly developed by MOL and Minaminippon, and will be the first wood chip carriers built by the shipyard.

Deadweight tonnage of the vessels is larger (about 57,000 tons) than conventional wood chip carriers. These vessels offer flexibility and broad utility, allowing them to transport other lightweight cargo as well as wood chips. The ships are also environmentally friendly, designed to maximize fuel efficiency.

MOL will continue to meet a broad range of customer needs in wood chip and lightweight cargo transport fields in Japan and overseas with the two new 3,800,000 cft-class carriers as well as existing 4,300,000 cft vessels as the flagships of its services.
