M/V “KING RICE” delivered on October 29, at I-S SHIPYARD CO., LTD., a member of IMABARI SHIPBUILDING GROUP, has become the 200th memorable vessel of 28,000M.T. D/W TYPE BULK CARRIER series having been delivered by IMABARI SHIPBUILDING GROUP.
It took only 3 and a half years to reach the 200th 28BC since 28BC series had reached 100 units delivered on March, 2009.
And for about 22 years since 1990, when M/V “STELLAR BENY” had been delivered as the very first vessel of 28BC series, the 28BC series has been enjoying good reputation and patronized as “IMABARI 28” by not only domestic ship-owners and operators but also by overseas customers as well.
From now on, we aim to develop, while inheriting the basic concept of the first 28BC, more fuel saving and ecological 28BC to cope with recent soaring oil price and environmental issues.
