Sanmar Shipyards in Turkey has delivered the Haisea Brave, the third battery electric tugboat, to HaiSea Marine in Canada. The vessel is scheduled to operate in Vancouver alongside its sister ships, HaiSea Wamis and HaiSea Wee’Git, before being transferred to LNG Canada’s new export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia. HaiSea Marine is a joint venture majority-owned by the Haisla Nation in partnership with Seaspan ULC, providing tug harbour and escort services in an environmentally-sensitive region. The tugs, based on the ElectRA 2800 SX design by Robert Allan Ltd, are designed to achieve 70 tonnes of bollard pull and operate on battery power alone during ship-berthing and unberthing missions.
