Our 37,000DWT Type Bulk Carrier was developed
as the next-generation small handy size bulk carrier, of
which first vessel had been completed on 8th of October,
2010, at our Imabari Head Office Factory, and its 4th vessel
is now under construction. During the course of the detailed
designing and actual construction, it is confirmed that
her performance figure has outweighed the original planning,
namely the fuel consumption has been improved by approx.
2%, and the deadweight increased by approx. 1,000metric
Basing on thus confirmed actual performance, we decided
to market this vessel as 38,000DWT Type Bulk Carrier with
its brand name "IS" BARI-STAR.
"IS" BARI-STAR is the fourth of our main product
"IS" series, including "IS" NEXTER(95,000DWT
Type Bulk Carrier), "IS" I-STAR(61,000DWT Type
Bulk Carrier) and "IS" BRASTAR(335,000DWT Type
The brand name "BARI-STAR" comes from the city
name of IMABARI, where our Head Office and Imabari Factory
is located and also the first "IS" BARI-STAR
was born. We sincerely hope that the "IS" BARI-STAR
brand will be shining together with continuous development
of her home region.
Thanks to the support from both domestic and overseas
customers, we have already received over forty orders
of "IS" BARI-STAR, and steadily accumulating
further as one of our main products.
