We are pleased to inform you about our newbuilding and repairing services.
Our strength lies first and foremost in our ability to build small-lot, high-value-added and custom-designed vessels. We have boldly taken on and completed a good number of challenging projects that other shipbuilders shy away from.
And it is our technical capabilities that make this business strategy possible. Despite the relatively small number of vessels it builds, Kyokuyo has a strong presence in the industry with more personnel in design and production teams than other builders of similar size.
We have earned a high reputation and strong trust from our international customers for our advanced technological capabilities, as exemplified by our signature SSS-BOW, electric propulsion mechanisms, and in-hold temperature control technologies.
While working on custom design projects such as versatile MPCs for European owners, SSS-BOWed container feeders for Japan's domestic logistics, and many others, we have also developed standard designs in the fields of container carriers and compact gas carriers.
For example, JAPANMAX - a feeder container ship design of less than 10,000 gross tons - is an established long-seller that supports container transport in East Asia, especially between Japan and China.
Regardless of the ship type, we incorporate feedback from our customers around the world into our lineup to regularly improve our standard designs and keep up with the latest shipping trends and standards.
Kyokuyo owns a 125m x 21.4m repair dock and provides services for regular surveys, modifications, marine casualties and on-site offshore repairs. Always closely working with our design and production teams, we offer the best service, quickly and flexibly.
The pie chart on the left shows statistics for vessels built by Kyokuyo since 2000. The two on the right are average for three-year period 2018-2020. Please note that all figures are approximate in nature.
