Seaspan responds to the government of British Columbia’s announcement regarding support for LNG bunkering
On October 23, the BC government made an important announcement in Vancouver to support the establishment of ship-to-ship LNG marine refueling services along the west coast of North America. Premier John Horgan committed $25,000 in support of a study to examine the environmental, competitive and social impact of LNG marine refueling, also known as LNG bunkering.
Five years ago, Seaspan committed to LNG as a viable marine fuel source on the West Coast and has since heavily invested in the technology and logistics to ensure we have a secure and safe source of LNG to fuel our vessels.
Seaspan currently operates two LNG-hybrid fuelled RO-RO ferries, with two more on order for delivery in 2021.
Since introducing these vessels to their fleet, Seaspan has been able to significantly reduce greenhouse gas, sulphur oxide, nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions in air shed while maintaining a high level of performance and reliability
