The ship is the first delivered under a two-ship contract signed in December 2012 with TOTE. The two 764-foot long Marlin Class containerships will be the largest dry cargo ships fueled by LNG.

This included collaboration during the design approval, construction and commissioning the ship to safely and effectively operate on natural gas.
