HaiSea Marine, primarily owned by the Haisla Nation in collaboration with Seaspan ULC, celebrated the naming and blessing of its innovative tug boat fleet, including the first fully electric harbor tugs and dual fuel (LNG and Diesel) escort tug boats. This green fleet will serve LNG carriers at LNG Canada’s export facility in Kitimat, within the Haisla Nation’s territory. The naming ceremony, held at Sanmar Shipyards in Istanbul, Turkey, featured boats named by the Haisla, Gitxaala, and Gitga’at Nations, reflecting cultural heritage and values. The fleet comprises three electric tugs, designed for assisting LNG carriers, and two dual fuel escort tugs, set to be Canada’s most powerful on the west coast.
