General Dynamics Nassco has announced that it has delivered the fourth of five ECO Class product tankers to American Petroleum Tankers (APT). The Bay State is 610 ft long, 50 000 dwt, has a 330 000 bbl cargo capacity, and is LNG-conversion-ready.
This announcement follows the recent news that the company has also laid the keel for the Palmetto State – another LNG-conversion-ready ECO Class tanker for APT. This vessel is due to be delivered in 2017.
Kevin Graney, Vice President and General Manager for General Dynamics Nassco, said: “The Bay State is the product of world leading design, engineering and construction.
“We take pride in knowing we are delivering another high quality vessel to our partner, American Petroleum Tankers.”
