Namura delivers ore carrier ‘Wugang Innovation’


'Wugang Innovation', a new ore carrier built by Namura Shipbuilding was delivered to NYK on October 28.

The ship is a Wozmax ore carrier, built to carry the maximum loading capacity allowed at ports in Western Australia, an area that has design limitations on the load draught of ships transporting ore. The vessel will be chartered exclusively to WISCO over 20 years to transport iron ore mainly from Australia and Africa to China. This is the first contract that NYK currently has with WISCO.

'Wugang Innovation' has a length overall of 330 metres, a breadth of 57 metres and a design draught of 18 metres, with a gross tonnage of 132,466 tonnes.
