NYK Buys Stake in EMAS Chiyoda Subsea
NYK has acquired a 25 percent share of EMAS Chiyoda Subsea Limited (ECS), based on an agreement signed on June 10 with Ezra Holdings Limited (Ezra) and the Chiyoda Corporation (Chiyoda).

By participating in the subsea EPCI segment, NYK saidi it plans to steadily accumulate expertise and further extend its service range in the offshore oil and gas value chain.
