NASCCO lays keel for APT’s third LNG-ready tanker

General Dynamics NASSCO hosted a keel laying ceremony on Friday for the third ECO tanker, the future Garden State, for American Petroleum Tankers currently under construction at the company’s shipyard in San Diego.

The ECO tanker is the third of a five-tanker contract between General Dynamics NASSCO and APT, which calls for the design and construction of five 50,000 deadweight ton, LNG-conversion-ready product carriers with a 330,000 barrel cargo capacity, the company said.

The ships were designed by DSEC, a subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of Busan, South Korea.

All five vessels will be powered by a G-series MAN ME slow-speed main engine. The tankers will also have dual-fuel-capable auxiliary engines and the ability to accommodate future installation of an LNG fuel-gas system.
