Crowley Takes Delivery of Fourth Product Tanker

Florida-based shipping company Crowley Maritime Corporation took delivery of MT West Virginia, the fourth new, Jones Act product tanker built by Philly Shipyard (PSI) in Philadelphia.

The company is scheduled to christen the LNG-ready product tanker, designed by South Korean Hyundai Mipo Dockyards (HMD), on August 16 at the shipyard.

Featuring 50,000 dwt, the ship is capable of carrying 330,000 barrels of product.

With its length of 600 feet, West Virginia has the capacity to transport crude oil or refined petroleum products, as well as various chemical cargoes.

West Virginia, which can be converted for propulsion by liquefied natural gas (LNG), joins its sister ships, Ohio and Texas, delivered in October and December 2015, respectively, and Louisiana, which was added to the fleet in mid-April 2016.

They were the first tankers to receive the American Bureau of Shipping’s (ABS) LNG-Ready Level 1 approval, allowing the conversion to LNG propulsion in the future.
