BC Ferries has awarded Remontowa Shipbuilding of Gdansk, Poland, a contract to build an additional LNG-powered vessel to go into service in the Southern Gulf Islands off Vancouver in 2022.

This vessel will be identical to three Salish-class vessels built by Remontowa for BC Ferries in 2016.

The 107-metre newbuilding will have capacity to carry 138 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew. Upon entering service with BC Ferries, it will replace Mayne Queen, an older diesel-fuelled vessel.
