The newest addition to the Bridgemans Service Group fleet is a 22m multi-purpose workboat,  Haisla Northwind.  This Eurocarrier is the first of its kind in Western Canada and is a multi-purpose vessel, providing support services for Boskalis dredging program.

In December of 2018, Bridgemans Marine Transport LP (BMT) and the Haisla Nation formed a joint venture partnership under Bridgemans Kitamaat Joint Venture. Offering passenger transportation, and marine survey vessels to support contractors working with the projects in Kitimat, B.C. A core part of the Bridgemans’ mission continues to be a socially-responsible and community-conscious effort to link the success of the Company with that of its employees. To date, 55% of all working hours have been provided by our First Nations crew members, with Haisla alone accounting for 41%. Along with the experience on vessels, is a comprehensive program for training and certification, targeted for both new and advanced mariners. A new vessel not only allows Bridgemans to expand operations, but raises up an entire group of mariners to fill the ranks.
