Energy efficient K Line ship makes inaugural visit to Royal Portbury Dock.
K Line’s new ship, a car carrier named Drive Green Highway, integrates advanced energy efficient technologies and design improvements to reduce its impact on the environment. It is the first of 8 similar vessels that will be built under K Line’s “Drive Green Project”, and was launched in early February at a ceremony in Nagasu Port in Kumamoto, a coastal city in southern Japan. Drive Green Highway uses its sheer size to improve its emissions efficiency. The vessel is 200m long and 37.5m wide and uses an improved design that enables it to carry up to 7,500 passenger vehicles at once.
