Significant moments in naval architecture & marine engineering

On October 16, 2015, U.S. shipbuilder General Dynamics NASSCO delivered the world's first liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered containership, Isla Bella, to domestic ship owner and operator TOTE Maritime. The 764-foot-long Isla Bella and its sister ship Perla del Caribe currently serve the Florida-Puerto Rico trade.

Today, LNG continues to pick up steam across the industry. In November 2017, French carrier CMA CGM announced that its nine new 22,000 TEU containerships would be equipped with engines fueled by LNG.

The October 2018 edition of Maritime Reporter & Engineering News, the world's largest audited circulation maritime magazine serving the maritime b2b space, will feature a special magazine supplement commemorating the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) 125th anniversary.
