New LPG Carrier “CRYSTAL RIVER” to serve Astomos Energy Corporation
Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (“K” Line) held a naming ceremony for the newly-built, very large liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) carrier for Astomos Energy Corporation (Astomos Energy) at Sakaide Shipyard of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. on July 6, 2017.
