The both ships are based on our 7,200m3 type standard design, like S504 delivered in September 2011, with a bunch of improvements to satisfy the latest regulations and owner's ideas, though.
Are you curious about what is going on with our new (office) building project, as reported in the news142? Yes, it is running as scheduled, with the old building completely demolished and bulldozed now. As everything is ready for construction works, we had the keel laying, err, ground breaking ceremony on January 20.
On July 6 2011 was launched S500, the first vessel in 4 sisters of 6,600tdw RORO carrier ordered by a European owner. The ship marks Kyokuyo's return to the sector after its m.v. Yuzui Maru left the dock in 1995.
Our last big event in 2004 was the ceremony to celebrate the launching of S455 and the keel-laying of S456. These are 12,000tdw type multi-purpose cargo vessels to be built for account of a Switzerland based owner, Enzian Shipping.
On September 10, the keel laying for S-443, a cement carrier ordered by messrs. Seiho Kaiun Co., Ltd., took place at our all-weather block assembly factory.
