NASSCO starts building third LNG-ready tanker

General Dynamics NASSCO said it started construction of a third “ECO” tanker to be built for American Petroleum Tankers at a steel cutting ceremony at NASSCO’s San Diego-based shipyard.

Each of the five 50,000 deadweight ton product carriers to be constructed by NASSCO will be LNG-conversion ready and will carry 330,000 barrels of cargo, the company said in a statement.

With a specialized ECO design, the tankers are more energy efficient and incorporate environmental protection features, including a ballast water treatment system, it added.
