Philly Shipyard has delivered the American Pride, the final of four next-generation 50,000DWT product tankers it has built for American Petroleum Tankers.
The vessel was delivered to the subsidiary of Kinder Morgan 10 days before the contract delivery date.
The 182.8-metre-long tanker, which has a carrying capacity of 54.8 million litres of crude oil or refined products, is based on a Hyundai Mipo Dockyards (HMD) design that incorporates fuel-efficiency features and flexible cargo capability.
The vessel has also received LNG Ready Level 1 approval from the American Bureau of Shipping.
The American Pride, like its three sister ships, was originally under contract with Philly Tankers, a Jones Act shipping company established in June 2014 by Philly Shipyard and investors to provide oil companies and other users with modern tonnage.
