BC Ferries’ Salish Raven, the third and final Salish Class LNG-fueled vessel arrived in British Columbia on Wednesday following a 41-day journey from  Remontowa Shipbuilding in Gdansk, Poland. 

Once Salish Raven clears Canadian Customs and final inspections are complete, the vessel will be officially handed over to BC Ferries.

The ship will proceed to BC Ferries’ refit facility in Richmond on Thursday, June 8 to prepare for operational service in the Southern Gulf Islands in the fall.

The artwork created for the Salish Raven will be applied on the ship in B.C. as the winter weather in Poland has temperatures below ideal for the application, BC Ferries said.

Salish Orca, BC Ferries’ first dual-fuel vessel, was introduced into service on the Powell River – Comox route in May and Salish Eagle, the second vessel, will start service on the Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands route in late June.

Each ship is powered by three Wartsila engines and is capable of transporting 145 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew.
