Wartsila to supply engines for LNG Canada tugs

Finland’s Wartsila has secured a contract to supply dual-fuel engines and other systems for two tugs that will serve the Shell-operated LNG Canada project in Kitimat.

HaiSea Marine, majority-owned by the Haisla Nation in partnership with Canada’s Seaspan ULC, awarded the contract to the engine manufacturer in April this year.

Warstila said in a statement the two vessels would feature its 34DF dual-fuel engines operating with LNG fuel.

The engines would be fitted with Wartsila’s NOx selective catalytic reduction system in order to restrict emissions of nitrogen oxides, it said.

In addition, Wartsila will also supply its LNGPac fuel storage, supply and control system.

Wartsila aims to deliver the equipment to Turkey’s Sanmar in 2022.

To remind, Sanmar is building the two dual-fueled tugs along three electric tugs.

Moreover, the tugs will provide ship-assist and escort towing services to carriers calling at LNG Canada’s export facility in Kitimat in the unceded traditional territory of the Haisla Nation.

HaiSea Marine has a contract with LNG Canada to build and operate escort and harbour tugs required for the 14 mtpa LNG export project worth more than $30 billion.

The RAstar 4000-DF escort tugs will measure 40 metres in length, and with 100 tonnes of bollard pull will be the west coast of Canada’s most powerful escort tugs, according to HaiSea Marine.
