Crowley Maritime has released a video of its new LNG-ready tanker, the West Virginia, during a recent stop in the Port of Jacksonville, US. The vessel was built by the sole operating subsidiary of Philly Shipyard ASA – Philly Shipyard Inc. (PSI) – and was officially christened in mid August 2016. It joins its three sister ships, Louisiana, Ohio and Texas, all of which are 50 000 dwt, 600 ft long, and capable of carrying 330 000 barrels of product. The tankers are also based on a proven Hyundai Mipo Dockyards (HMD) design, incorporating a number of fuel efficiency features, flexible cargo capability and the latest regulatory requirements. The video, which includes words from Chairman, President and CEO Tom Crowley, can be viewed below.
