The world’s biggest cargo boat is now on the move.
In March, the $1.4 billion S.W.O.L. Cargo Ship, built by the Japanese firm Kojima Heavy Industries, sailed for a test voyage on its maiden voyage.
It will be the largest commercial vessel to sail under its maiden name.
“We wanted to demonstrate that it can be built in a way that meets the needs of the customer,” says Kojimas chief executive Masaru Yamamoto.
The Kojimo-designed S.U.L.-5 is a 10,000-ton, 4,000 kilograms container vessel that is designed to carry cargo up to 1,200 tons.
Kojiman, which plans to sell the ship to the world’s largest container shipping company, was founded by Kojimechika, who died in 2010.
The company is based in Tokyo.
It was founded in 1988 by a team of former Kojimeshige engineers.
Its design is inspired by the Kojin-class, a type of container ship built in the 1930s by Mitsubishi.
Kijima Heavy, which makes the Kijimas flagship S.K.S.O.-1 and Kijin-3, will make the S.S.-5, a 10-metre-long, 4-metres wide, 300-kilometre-wide cargo vessel.
It’s the first ship of its kind to be built by Kijiman.
The S.D.N.K.-1 will be a 30-metron-long vessel, which is 20 metres longer than the S S.B.
S-1, which was designed in 2009.
It is also the first cargo vessel to be made in Japan, by Kajima Heavy.
The ship will have the capacity to hold 2,000 tons of cargo.
It has a gross length of 3,000 metres, a beam of 1.2 metres, and a maximum draft of 15 metres.
“In order to build the S D N K-1 and S S B S-1s, we made a lot of sacrifices and sacrifices for the project,” says Yamamoto, who is also Kojimi Heavy’s president.
The first two ships are being built by Mitsui Shipping Co. of Japan, and the S K S B-1 is being built at the Kajimeji Shipyard in Koyasan, central Japan.
The next step is to order additional S. S B ships.
The construction of the S-5 is expected to take about six years.
“It will be more than twice the size of a Kojimen,” Yamamoto says.
“And it will be much more versatile.
It can be converted to a large ship.
The second ship will be for transport of oil, gas and other liquids.”
“The Kojims’ work is based on the Japanese shipbuilding tradition,” says Jiro Yamaguchi, who was chief executive of Mitsui for 10 years.
He is now a director at the Tokyo-based Mitsubashi Heavy Industries.
The vessel is expected be ready for export by 2020.
