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.”
