BC Ferries’ third LNG-fueled vessel departs Poland

BC Ferries’ Salish Raven, the third and final Salish Class LNG-fueled vessel, is on its way from Remontowa Shipbuilding’s Gdansk, Poland, shipyard to British Columbia.

The vessel will make a 10,440 nautical mile journey bound for British Columbia over the next 45 to 55 days. The journey will include stops for refueling in Santa Cruz, Canary Islands and Panama City, Panama.

The vessel will also transit the Panama Canal and sail up the west coast of North America to British Columbia, BC Ferries said.

Salish Orca, BC Ferries’ first LNG-fuel vessel, will start service next month on the Powell River – Comox route. Salish Eagle, the second Salish Class vessel, will start service on the Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands route in late June.

Salish Raven will be introduced in the Southern Gulf Islands in the fall, BC Ferries’s statement reads.

BC Ferries will take final acceptance and ownership of Salish Raven upon final inspection once the vessel arrives in B.C.

Remontowa Shipbuilding is responsible for delivering the ship to British Columbia, while some of BC Ferries’ crew members are on various legs of the voyage for training and familiarization.
