On 26th September, General Dynamics NASSCO delivered the fourth vessel in a series of five Eco-class product tankers under contract with American Petroleum Tankers. The Bay State was delivered during a special signing ceremony at the NASSCO shipyard in San Diego, California.

The Bay State is a 610-foot-long, 50,000-deadweight-ton, LNG-conversion-ready product tanker with a 330,000-barrel cargo capacity. The ship was designed by DSEC, a subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) of Busan, South Korea. The design incorporates improved fuel efficiency concepts through several features, including a G-series MAN ME slow-speed main engine and an optimized hull form.

In a statement, Kevin Graney, vice president and general manager for General Dynamics NASSCO, said: "The Bay State is the product of world-leading design, engineering and construction. We take pride in knowing we are delivering another high-quality vessel to our partner, American Petroleum Tankers."

The first three ships of the Eco-class program for APT - the Lone Star State, the Magnolia State, and the Garden State - have been delivered and are in service. The fifth and final ship under the contract with APT is scheduled to be delivered in 2017.

The construction and operation of the new Eco-class tankers are aligned with the Jones Act, requiring that ships carrying cargo between U.S. ports be built in U.S. shipyards.

In the past decade, NASSCO has delivered 28 ocean-going ships to government and commercial customers, including the world's first LNG-powered containership, the Isla Bella.
