On March 10, Aker Philadelphia Shipyard (Oslo: AKPS) launched Ship 013, the ninth product tanker in a series of 12 to be completed by 2011. The 46,000 dwt vessel was floated off of its blocks and was transferred by tug from the Building Dock to the Outfitting Dock, where it will remain for the next few weeks as it undergoes continuous testing and commissioning in preparation for its upcoming sea trials.

When completed, the 600-ft long vessel, to be named the Overseas Martinez, will be sold to American Shipping Company and bareboat chartered to OSG America for use transporting petroleum products. The launch of Ship 013 coincides with the conclusion of a month long food drive held by the employees of Aker Philadelphia Shipyard and the Philadelphia Metal Trades Union for Philabundance. This is the second year the shipyard and union have partnered to help provide food for the community.

The yard currently has three additional product tankers under construction as part of its historical build program.
