Seaspan Ferries Corporation (SFC) has commissioned its two LNG-fueled ferries, the Seaspan Swift and Seaspan Reliant, at the company’s Tilbury terminal. 

The two ferries are the first of their kind in the North America, SFC said in its statement on Sunday.

Following their construction at Sedef Shipyard in Istanbul, Turkey, the Seaspan Swift arrived in December 2016 and entered operation in January 2017, while the Seaspan Reliant arrived in late February and is scheduled to begin service later this month.

The 148.9 meter long ferries which can accommodate up to 59, 53’ trailers mark the first new vessels added to SFC’s fleet since 2002, the company’s statement reads.

Designed by VARD Marine the two vessels will operate between the British Columbia mainland and Vancouver Island.

SFC currently operates a fleet of seven ferries out of five terminals in British Columbia and supplies more than 50 percent of all cargo to Vancouver Island.
