BC Ferries Orders Another Salish-Class

After receiving its first two hybrid-electric ferries in January from the Damen yard in Romania (see Pacific Maritime Magazine, Feb 2020) BC Ferries expects to receive its fourth Salish-class LNG-fueled ferry from Poland’s Remontowa yard in 2022.

The mid-size vessel, which will be able to carry at least 138 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew, will replace the 1965-built Mayne Queen which is limited to 58 vehicles and 400 passengers and crew.
