Naming Ceremony Held for the New Module Carrier

Equipped with an Innovative Air-Lubrication System
On March 25, a naming ceremony was held at the Koyagi Plant of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries" Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works for a newly built module carrier* for the NYK Group company, NYK-Hinode Line Ltd. At the ceremony, NYK vice-president Shinji Kobayashi named the ship YAMATAI, and his wife cut the ceremonial rope holding the vessel in place. Shiro Iijima, director, executive vice-president of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., and Sumio Kinoshita, president of NYK-Hinode Line Ltd., were also in attendance.
YAMATAI has been equipped with an innovative air-lubrication system that will generate bubbles by supplying air to the vessel bottom, thus reducing the frictional resistance between the vessel"s bottom and the seawater. The system is expected to result in 10 percent less CO2 emissions from the vessel.

YAMATAI will be the first vessel engaged in overseas transport to make use of a permanently installed air-lubrication system using an air-blower. The ship is set to be completed on March 31, 2010.
