In today’s spotted, we bring you an image of Rickmers Tokyo, a general cargo vessel which recently loaded reactors and pressure vessels in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, for the Lotte’s MEG plant in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Owned by Rickmers Linie whose business operations were acquired by Zeaborn, the 30,000 dwt ship features a length of 192.9 meters and a width of 27.8 meters. This Marshall Islands-flagged ship was built by China’s Xiamen Shipbuilding in 2002.
As disclosed, Rickmers-Line was awarded the 120.000 FRT project by one of Koreas’s biggest Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors for one of the world’s largest monoethylene glycol (MEG) plants.
“Having dedicated over ten consecutive voyages to move all cargo from Korea to the US, we are proud to play our part in the development of Lake Charles as a premier hub for the petrochemical industry,” Rickmers-Line said.
