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.
The new vessel was given her name “CRYSTAL RIVER” by Mr. Osamu Masuda, President of Astomos Energy.

CRYSTAL RIVER will commence her service to Astomos Energy under a memorial first-ever time charter contract directly concluded between the two companies upon her delivery from the shipyard, which is expected to be on July 14, 2017.
