The HaiSea Wamis is Canada’s inaugural fully electric harbour tugboat, which has recently made its way to North Vancouver. This vessel marks a significant milestone as it joins the fleet of HaiSea Marine as it arrived in British Columbia. The electric tugboat, known as ElectRA 2800SX, boasts impressive dimensions, measuring 28.40 meters in length, 13 meters in beam, and 5.60 meters in depth. It is equipped with a Corvus battery installation system producing 5288 kWh, and is the third largest on any vessel (including cruise ships) to date, enabling it to achieve a bollard pull of 70 tonnes. One advantage of its location in Kitimat is the availability of abundant hydroelectric power, which allows the harbour tugs to recharge their batteries at dedicated shore charging facilities while docked between jobs.
