TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President & CEO: Junichiro Ikeda) today announced a vessel design it calls "EeneX," for a 90-type (90,000 DWT) next-generation coal carrier, developed in cooperation with Japanese shipyards.
The vessel's design draws on the shipyard's extensive knowledge of coal carriers as well as MOL's know-how in ship operation, with the goal of achieving safe, reliable and economically efficient transport of coal, an important energy resource for Japan. MOL proposes the "EeneX" brand under its concept of providing optimal, "stress-free" transport service for customers and the environment.
