World’s First LNG Powered Container Ship

An historic first for U.S. ship builders was achieved when General Dynamics NASSCO delivered the Isla Bella to TOTE Maritime. The Isla Bella is the largest LNG container ship ever constructed and was delivered two months ahead of schedule. The ship will be the cleanest cargo ship in the world and will dramatically decrease emissions and increase fuel efficiency compared to conventionally powered ships. “The delivery of this historic ship, also demonstrates successful collaboration between industry and regulatory bodies.”
