World’s most environmentally friendly tug fleet delivered to Haisea Marine

With the recent arrival in British Columbia of Haisea Warrior , the full fleet of LNG powered escort tugs and battery electric harbour tugs for Canada’s HaiSea Marine have now completed their delivery voyages from Türkiye’s Sanmar Shipyards.

Sister tugs Haisea Warrior and Haisea Warrior Warrior are two extreme-performance RAstar 4000-DF LNG dual fuel escort tugs which will guide LNG carriers in and out from the soon-to-open LNG Canada terminal in Kitimat, BC.

They will do so along a 159-nautical-mile route between the terminal and the pilot boarding station near Triple Island, which represents the longest escort route in the world.

HaiSea Brave also recently arrived to complete the set of three ElectRA 2800 battery electric tugs, joining its sisters HaiSea Wee’git, and HaiSea Wamis – 2023’s Tug of the Year (as awarded at TugTechnology). These unique tugs will provide ship berthing and unberthing assistance to the LNG carriers in the immediate vicinity of the terminal.

The environmental credentials of this all-new fleet for HaiSea Marine are unequaled worldwide. The five tugs are the firsts to ever receive class society ABS’ ENVIRO+ notation, their highest standard available.

HaiSea Wamis recently became the first tug to ever receive an underwater radiated noise notation (ABS UWN), with underwater noise levels in transit a mere 1/10th that of an equivalent diesel mechanical tug.

Airborne emissions of both tug types are also mere fractions of traditional counterparts, with the battery electric tugs emitting zero CO2 or other greenhouse gases when operating on their large battery banks charged from the clean local hydroelectric power grid.
