US-based Philly Shipyard (PSI) has delivered the third of four product tankers that it is building for American Petroleum Tankers (APT), a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan.

The next generation 50,000 dwt American Liberty, which has a carrying capacity of 14.5 million gallons of crude oil or refined products, was handed over to its owner on July 26.

The tanker is based on a proven Hyundai Mipo Dockyards (HMD) design that also incorporates numerous fuel efficiency features, flexible cargo capability, and the latest regulatory requirements.

American Liberty has also received LNG Ready Level 1 approval from the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

“This vessel is delivered on time, the hallmark of great shipbuilding that our customers depend on. As we celebrate this achievement and say farewell to the American Liberty, we wish the crew a safe and successful voyage beyond our shipyard here in Philadelphia,” Steinar Nerbovik, Philly Shipyard’s President and CEO, said.

This delivery is the 27th vessel built by PSI, formerly known as Aker Philadelphia Shipyard. The shipyard currently has one additional 50,000 dwt tanker for APT and two 3,600 TEU containerships for Matson Navigation Company under construction.
