Japanese shipping heavyweight Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) is practically counting the days until the delivery of its Wind Challenger project.
Under the project, a hard sail system, known as the Wind Challenger, was installed on board a bulk carrier at compatriot Oshima Shipbuilding.
The system is currently undergoing sea trials to confirm its capabilities at sea, the final construction stage before its upcoming delivery.
As disclosed earlier, the hard sail-equipped vessel is slated for delivery in October this year when it will start transporting cargoes for Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc.
