BC Ferries’ third LNG-vessel transits Panama Canal

BC Ferries' third LNG-vessel transits Panama Canal

BC Ferries’ Salish Raven, the third and final Salish Class LNG-fueled vessel transited the Panama Canal earlier this week on its way to British Columbia. 

The vessel departed Gdansk, Poland on April 28, and is currently on its way up the west coast of North America.

BC Ferries said it expects the vessel to arrive by early June.

BC Ferries will take final acceptance and ownership of Salish Raven upon final inspection once the vessel arrives in British Columbia. Some of the company’s crew members are on various legs of the voyage for training and familiarization.

Salish Orca, the first of three LNG-fueled ferries built for BC Ferries, entered service on the Comox – Powell River route last week.

Salish Eagle, the second Salish Class vessel, will start service on the Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands route in late June, while the Salish Raven will be introduced in the Southern Gulf Islands in the fall.

The 107-metre Salish Class ships will carry 145 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew. The vessels feature two car decks and have a service speed of 15.5 knots. Each ship is powered by three Wartsila 8L20DF engines.
