‘K’ Line-brand new car carrier MV Helios Highway with a load of vehicles from Japan made the maiden call at the Port of Hambantota recently. 

In order to mark the occasion, a plaque ceremony was organised on-board the vessel between Hambantota Port General Manager Norman Weeraratne and vessel Master Capt. Rosen Georgiev. 

ABC Shipping (Private) Limited acts as the agent for the vessel.   

Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA) Chief Manager Marketing and Business Developments Upul Jayathissa expressing views at the occasion stated that that the SLPA was pleased to welcome the ‘K’ Line’s new ship to the Port of Hambantota and expected that more ‘K’ Line brand-new pure car carriers (PCCs) would call at the port in the near future. 

Speaking at the occasion ABC Shipping Chairman John Shiran Dissanayake said apart from the PCCs, ‘K’ Line had already placed an order for five more 14,000 TEU vessels at Imabari Shipbuilding Co., Ltd, due to be delivered in 2018. 

“Our ULCV (Ultra Large Container Vessel) fleet with the latest energy-saving technologies will become 10 units in total. These 10 vessels will be the flagships of the ‘K’ Line containership business with which ‘K’ Line shall continue to deliver a service of high quality to our valued customers,” he added.

SLPA Chief Operations Manager Nimal Jayatissa, Hambantota Port Assistant General Manager Suranga Peiris and ABC Shipping Director Roshan Dissanayake were also present at the occasion.
