Seaspan comments on B.C.’s support for LNG bunkering services

Seaspan has released a statement supporting the recent announcement by the Government of British Columbia (B.C.) to support the establishment of ship-to-ship LNG marine refuelling services along the west coast of North America.

According to the statement, Premier John Horgan committed CAN$25 000 in support of a study to look into the environmental, competitive and social impact of LNG bunkering operations.

Seaspan claims that, over the past five years, it has been committed to LNG as a viable marine fuel source on the West Coast, and has since heavily invested in the technology and logistics to ensure it has a safe and secure source of LNG to fuel its vessels.

Frank Butzelaar, Chief Executive Officer, Seaspan Marine Transportation, said: “The two LNG hybrid vessels currently in our fleet have operated with greenhouse gas emission reductions of over 50% compared to traditional vessels; a large part of which is directly linked to the use of LNG fuel. These results prompted the planned expansion of our fleet of LNG vessels. A commitment to LNG is the right decision for our business and for the environment.”
