With an impressive construction record and full range of leading-edge technologies, JMU builds high performance tankers with outstanding safety and environmental performance.
JMU has consistently developed and built large-scale tankers that were the most advanced of their times. For example, we constructed the world’s first VLCC (Very Large Crude oil Carrier), the “Idemitsu Maru,” and also constructed Japan’s first double-hulled VLCC. In the field of VLCCs, we developed the Malaccamax class, which has a larger capacity than conventional ships and can pass through the Strait of Malacca, and a 2 million barrel type that has won high marks for its excellent fuel economy and high versatility. Because JMU supplies products that meet customers’ needs, we boast an extensive shipbuilding record that includes many of the world’s leading ships.
The next-generation VLCC, which was developed by concentrating state-of-the-art technologies, is a global environment-friendly energy saving ship with dramatically improved fuel efficiency.
