NASSCO delivers LNG-ready Magnolia State to APT
General Dynamics NASSCO informed on Friday it has delivered the second ECO Class LNG-ready tanker for American Petroleum Tankers.
The Magnolia State is the second of a five-tanker contract between NASSCO and APT.
The contract calls for the design and construction of five 50,000 deadweight ton, LNG-conversion-ready product carriers with a 330,000 barrel cargo capacity,
Construction works on the Magnolia State began in December 2014 with the keel laying taking place in June 2015, while the vessel’s christening took place in April this year.
All five ships on order at General Dynamics NASSCO were designed by DSEC, a unit of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of Busan, South Korea.
All vessels will have dual-fuel-capable auxiliary engines and the ability to accommodate future installation of an LNG fuel-gas system.
