Seaspan Ferries awards LNG contract


Seaspan Ferries (SFC) has announced that Turkish shipbuilder Sedef Shipyard has been awarded the contract for the construction of two 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.
