US-based shipping company Totem Ocean Trailer Express (TOTE) placed an order at NASSCO to build two boxships with three options for more, with first delivery to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2015.
The containership, 233m in length and 32.2m in breadth, will be based on design developed by DSEC.
Moreover, the Korean total solution company plans to delivery design and equipment package, which includes High Pressure LNG Fuel Supply System, Type-C LNG fuel tank, etc., starting from January 2013.
Also, the 3,100-teu newbuildings will be equipped with MAN Electronic Gas-Injection Engine, domestically made Dual Fuel Diesel Generator, etc.
The vessels will be the most environmentally friendly containerships in the world with CO2 emissions-per-container that are 71% less than the vessels now in the Puerto Rican trade.
Meanwhile, NASSCO had successfully delivered five MR tankers in 2006 with the support from DSEC.
