General Dynamics Nassco has announced that the float-out of the Bay State has been successfully completed. The LNG-ready ECO tanker is scheduled to be christened on 17 September 2016 at the NASSCO shipyard in San Diego, US.

The vessel is the fourth in a series of five tankers for American Petroleum Tankers. All five of the vessels are 50 000 dwt, 610 ft long and have a 330 000 barrel cargo capacity.

All vessels in the series have been designed by a subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) โ€“ DSEC โ€“ and feature a G-series MAN ME slow-speed main engine and an optimised hull form. In addition to this, they feature dual-fuel capable auxiliary engines and the ability to incorporate the installation of an LNG fuel gas system at a later date.
