NASSCO Delivers Third In Series Of Four San Clemente-Class Tankers For OSG Subsidiary

The 90,000-deadweight-ton S/S Overseas New York, the third of four San Clementeclass tankers ordered for subsidiaries of Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (OSG), was recently delivered by National Steel and Shipbuilding Company, 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 Overseas Chicago and the Overseas Ohio are now in service. The fourth and last ship in the group, Overseas Washington, is scheduled for delivery in February 1978.

The NASSCO-designed San Clemente-class tankers incorporate special pollution abatement and related safety features, including double bottoms, inert gas systems, anticollision radar, high-capacity 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.

National Steel and Shipbuilding Company is equally owned by Kaiser Industries Corporation and Morrison-Knudsen Company, Inc.
