Haisla, Seaspan partner on $500 million LNG tug enterprise

Share

The Haisla and Seaspan Marine Transportation have formed a joint partnership called HaiSea Marine, which will build and operate tugboats to escort LNG carriers in and out of the harbour in Kitimat.

The contract is valued at $500 million over 12 years and will employ 70 mariners and six onshore staff. Training will be provided by Seaspan Marine Transportation.

“LNG Canada has committed to ensuring benefits from our project accrue to First Nations, local communities and BC businesses, and this contract is part of that commitment. The legacy the LNG Canada project will leave, in part, is the long-term, high-skilled jobs for First Nations and local community members. HaiSea was selected because they were able to demonstrate technical capability, operational expertise, and training at world class levels.”

– Peter Zebedee, CEO, LNG Canada
