Vigor delivers passenger ferry to WETA
Vigor recently delivered a 400-passenger ferry to the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) in California.
The hull was constructed at Vigor Ballard and the superstructure was built in Vigor’s aluminium fabrication bay at its Harbor Island facility.
Like its sister ships, Hydrus and Cetus, Argo was designed by Incat Crowther.
The ferry has a service speed of 27 knots.
The vessel features a selective catalytic reduction after-treatment system developed by Pacific Power Group and is powered by two MTU 12V4000 M64 engines.
Construction of Carina, the fourth WETA ferry in the Hydrus-class, is already underway at Vigor, with delivery expected by the end of 2018.
The ferry has a length of 41.1 metres, width of 12 metres and a two-metre draught.
