HaiSea Marine – the world’s greenest fleet of tugboats

April 22, 2023

HaiSea Marine, a joint venture majority owned by the Haisla Nation in partnership with Seaspan ULC, is preparing to launch in mid-2023. Take a sneak peek at the new fleet of vessels, featuring the world’s first fully electric harbour tugboats, and learn more about why Seaspan, Haisla Nation, and LNG Canada are excited to be taking the lead in building environmentally-friendly tugboats.

HaiSea Marine has a major contract with LNG Canada to build and operate escort and harbour tugs required for their export facility in Kitimat. With an ample supply of clean hydroelectric power available in Kitimat, the harbour tugs will be able to recharge from dedicated shore charging facilities at their berths between dockings, effectively resulting in near-zero emissions when running on batteries.
