On May 14, a new coal carrier Lily Fortune was delivered at Oshima Shipbuilding Co Ltd in Saikai city in Nagasaki prefecture in Japan. The new coal carrier is the third ship to take the Lily Fortune name, which derives from the white lily, the symbolic flower of the former city of Haramachi in Fukushima prefecture. The vessel will transport coal to coal-fired power plants of Tohoku Electric Power mainly from Australia and Indonesia to generate electricity for Japan’s Tohoku region.

The transport provided by NYK will have less of an environmental impact because this vessel comes equipped with a scrubber system* that is compliant with the International Maritime Organization’s more stringent SOx emission regulation that became effective in January

In addition, the new Lily Fortune is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 4% compared to a standard coal carrier through the use of energy-saving devices such as an advanced rudder bulb and fixed fins that improve water flow generated at the aft-end of the vessel.
