The 'Sunshine Pride', an NYK-operated coal carrier for Joban Joint Power of Japan, has been delivered by Tsuneishi Shipbuilding.

The ship will be used, under a long-term contract, for transport of coal mainly from overseas to generate electricity at the Nakoso Power Station in the city of Iwaki. This power station is said to make use of efficient clean coal technology to support the recovery of Fukushima prefecture.

Sunshine Pride is 229m length oa, 32.26m beam, and of 81,378 dwt.

The resource transportation provided by NYK will have less of an environmental impact because this vessel comes equipped with a scrubber system that is compliant with the IMO SOx emission regulations. In accordance with its medium-term management plan 'Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalisation and Green' announced last year, NYK is contributing to a stable energy supply for local society through the operation of environment-friendly ships, thus realising the sustainable creation of new corporate and social value.
