"Where are the mare incognita that we can explore?" - As a result of its market research to find a new target to challenge, Kyokuyo Shipyard turned its attention to the compact ROROs in the late 2000s - firstly because their replacement was getting overdue in this sector while not many shipyards were available, and secondly because this type of ship has an excellent potential from an environmental perspective.

Both RORO cargo ships and PCCs/PCTCs had been built by Kyokuyo in the past, but it was a long time ago. The development of new designs was to start over from scratch. We began by inspecting similar vessels under construction at other shipyards, reviewing and accumulating know-how, and carefully preparing for construction through repeated analysis and tests, including the fabrication of full-scale blocks for simulation purposes.

Our vigilant efforts resulted in the 2010 Ship-of-the-Year CITY OF ST.PETERSBURG and her sister, as well as series of other successful and innovative RORO cargo carriers and PCTCs delivered to European owners.

WEALTH OF EXPERTISE AND IDEAS

Due to changes in market trends, we are not actively seeking orders at this time, but we retain a wealth of expertise and ideas to build quality ROROs/PCCs : pillar-less structures, electrification of RORO equipment, emergency propulsion system, optimization of the cargo handling process - to name a few.

We are looking forward to the day when we will be able to apply our technologies to a new RORO/PCC project. Why don't you propose one?
