Seaspan Marine Transportation on Thursday (May 19) said Seaspan ULC signed a shipbuilding contract with CIMC Sinopacific Offshore & Engineering (CIMC SOE) for the construction of two 7,600 m3 LNG bunker vessels, with the option for a third vessel.
For the design of the LNG bunker vessels, Seaspan worked closely with the Canadian-based team at VARD Marine Inc. to incorporate emerging technologies resulting in a decrease in emissions and underwater noise.
The design is focused on safe, efficient, and economical bunkering of multiple ship types with an ability to transfer to and from a wide range of terminals.
The design will allow the vessel to engage in ship-to-ship LNG transfer as well as coastal and short sea shipping operations.
CIMC SOE is an experienced small-scale gas carrier shipyards, having delivered more than 30 LNG gas carriers.
Seaspan is the first Canadian company to order LNG Bunker tonnage for the Pacific Northwest.
The first vessel is expected to be delivered and in operation in 2024.
