Kawasaki Shipbuilding Corporation launched the Komatsushima Star bulk carrier , March 31, 2009 for Panama-based Lua Line S.A. at its Kobe Shipyard. The bulk carrier, identified as Kawasaki hull No. 1615 and the 26th 55,100DWT bulk carrier developed by Kawasaki Shipbuilding, was delivered in June 2009 after outfitting at the quay of the Shipyard.

The 189.9 m vessel has a flush deck with forecastle and five holds that are designed for optimum transport of grains, coals, ores and steel products. A new proprietary bow designed to reduce wave resistance allows the ship to operate with less fuel. Four 30 ton deck cranes are installed in the center in between hatch covers to enable cargo loading and unloading in ports where no cargo handling facilities are available.
