Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K LINE) and Daito Corporation have commenced the operation of the Yokohama Daikoku C-4 terminal in Japan, which will use renewable energy.

The pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) Ivory Arrow, operated by K LINE, made the first call at what is said to be the company’s first dedicated finished vehicle terminal in Japan.

With the support of a work facility with a large roof, the terminal is designed to handle various vehicles, such as break-bulk cargoes, in addition to serving as an export and transhipment base for finished vehicles.

K LINE stated: “The terminal will use electric power generated from renewable energy sources with virtually zero CO₂ emissions.”

The terminal will receive 100% wind-generated renewable energy from the blockchain-based electricity traceability service of ‘Minna-Denryoku’, which is managed by UPDATER Corporation.

The terminal has a total yard area of approximately 153,500m², as well as a pier length of 350m and sea depth of 15m. Its parking slots can accommodate around 8,000 units.

Last November, K LINE revised part of its long-term environmental guidelines, “K LINE Environmental Vision 2050”, and set a 2050 target for net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Recently, K LINE unveiled two conceptual designs for liquefied natural gas (LNG)-driven and battery-powered bulk carriers.

The vessels are being designed in order to cut down emissions while enhancing efficiency in operations.
