Sedef Shipyard to build Seaspan's dual-fuelled ferries

Seaspan Ferries said that Sedef Shipyard of Turkey has been awarded the contract for the construction of two new dual-fuelled (diesel and LNG) ferries.

The 148.9 metre ferries, both expected to be in operation by late 2016, will accommodate up to 59 trailers. Construction is scheduled to start in early 2015.

SFC’s contract award comes on the heels of an extensive and competitive procurement process that included more than 40 shipyards around the world, as well as a thorough analysis of Seaspan Shipyard’s capacity to construct these vessels at its new facility at Vancouver Shipyards, the company said in a statement.

“Our decision to have a non-Seaspan shipyard build our new ferries was not made lightly, but it was a simple decision based on capacity,” said Jonathan Whitworth, CEO, Seaspan.

Sedef Shipyard has built more than 175 vessels since it was first founded in 1975, and it is owned by Turkon Holdings.
