National Steel And Shipbuilding Delivers Second Of Four 90,000-Ton Tankers To OSG
The 90,000-deadweight-ton S/S Overseas Ohio, the second of four San Clemente-Class tankers ordered for subsidiaries of Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (OSG), was delivered on October 20 to its owner by National Steel and Shipbuilding Co., San Diego, Calif.
The ships were contracted for in 1973 in anticipation of the completion of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, and are being built without Federal construction differential subsidies.
The NASSCO-designed San Clemente-Class tankers incorporate special pollution abatement and related safety features, including double bottoms, inert gas systems, anticollision radar, highcapacity clean ballast systems, and sewage treatment plants.
They are 894 feet long, have beams of 105 feet, and depths of 64 feet, and are of the maximum size that can transit the Panama Canal. The latest in automation has been designed in the ship's operational controls.
OSG is the only publicly owned company engaged exclusively in the ocean transportation of bulk commodities in both the worldwide and U.S. shipping markets.
OSG is the largest independent owner of unsubsidized U.S.-flag tankers.
The name Overseas Ohio is in honor of the Standard Ohio Company (Ohio) which has chartered all four of the new tankers. The first one, Overseas Chicago, is now in service. The other two sisterships, named Overseas New York and Overseas Washington, are scheduled for delivery this month and February 1978.
National Steel and Shipbuilding Company is equally owned by Kaiser Industries Corporation and Morrison-Knudsen Company, Inc.
