Spirit of British Columbia & Spirit of Vancouver converted to operate on LNG

The flagship vessels of British Columbia Ferry Services, Canada, are to be converted to operate on LNG fuel. Wärtsilä is contracted to provide a comprehensive scope of engines, propulsion machinery, integrated automation systems, and gas handling systems required for this mid-life upgrade. Wärtsilä’s unique capabilities as a systems integrator, together with its unmatched portfolio of products, systems and solutions, was the essential element in bringing the project planning to fruition.

“We know and trust Wärtsilä’s broad range of competences, and appreciate the detailed engineering and attention to schedule that Remontowa and Wärtsilä have undertaken for the completion of this project. The broad scope of equipment needed heightens considerably the importance of systems integration and LNG experience and in this we believe that Wärtsilä is one of the best in the Marine sector.”

Mark Wilson, Vice President, Engineering, BC Ferries.
