NASSCO delivers first LNG containership to TOTE

NASSCO delivers first LNG-powered vessel to TOTE

General Dynamics NASSCO said it delivered the world’s first LNG-powered containership, the Isla Bella, to TOTE Maritime.

As part of a two-ship contract signed in December 2012 with TOTE, the 764-foot long Marlin Class containerships will be the largest dry cargo ships powered by LNG, NASSCO said in a statement.

The Jones Act-qualified ships will operate between Jacksonville, Florida, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

NASSCO currently has ten commercial ships in its backlog, including the two Marlin Class containerships for TOTE.

For its commercial work, NASSCO partners with South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME), for access to ship design and shipbuilding technologies.
