GD NASSCO to Christen Matson Containership

MarineLink

General Dynamics NASSCO will hold a special event to christen and launch the containership Lurline on Saturday, June 15. Lurline is an 870-foot-long, 3,500 TEU, 44,200 dwt, combination containership/RoRo vessel built for Matson, Inc. The ship is the largest containership ever built in San Diego.

Lurline has liquefied natural gas-capable engines and is designed for energy efficiency. It is the lead ship of a two-vessel contract being built for Matson at General Dynamics NASSCO.

Ceremony participants include General Dynamics NASSCO president Kevin Graney and Matson CEO Matt Cox. Constance Lau, CEO and director of Hawaiian Electric Industries and a Matson board of directors member, will christen the ship with the traditional break of a champagne bottle on the hull.
