       加拿大渡轮船东和运营商British Columbia Ferry Services Inc (BC Ferries)近期又从欧洲一家造船业巨头订造了4艘岛屿级(Island Class)混合电动力渡轮。
 
       该渡轮公司宣布,荷兰达门造船集团(Damen Shipyards Group)获得建造新船的合同。
 
       四艘新岛屿级渡轮的项目成本约为2亿美元,包括融资和项目管理。
 
       据悉,BC Ferries的采购项目吸引了来自18个国际造船厂的投标,最后9家造船厂被邀请参与详细的投标过程。没有一家加拿大造船厂表示有兴趣竞争这份合同。
 
       BC Ferries和达门造船正式确认展开合作伙伴关系后,达门造船将和位于加拿大不列颠哥伦比亚的Point Hope船厂达成协议,当地员工将为新船提供技术和保修支持。
 
       BC Ferries负责业务发展与创新的副总裁Jamie Marshall船长说:“我们的清洁未来计划(Clean Futures Plan)阐明了我们的战略,即通过清洁能源动力船舶取代传统高碳化石燃料动力船舶的方法以减少温室气体(GHG)排放。”
 
      Marshall 补充说:“接下来的这4艘岛屿级船舶是我们实现逐步降低整个船队排放计划的重要一步,也是我们公司领先向低碳未来能源转型的关键一步。”
 
       这些岛屿级渡轮是电池动力型渡轮。如若充电技术足够成熟,电力供应达到所需量,BC Ferries将以纯电力推动方式运营这些渡轮,完全使用清洁能源。在此期间,这些船只使用的是低硫柴电混合动力系统。
 
     BC Ferries与达门造船签订的是一份定价设计-建造合同,为BC Ferries提供了与交付日期、性能标准、成本确定性和质量建设相关的实质性保障。
 
       首批两艘岛屿级船舶将在2020年中期部署在鲍威尔河-特克塞达岛航线和麦克尼尔港-阿勒特湾-索因图拉岛航线。
 
       到2022年,第三和第四艘新船将服务于坎贝尔河-奎德拉岛航线,第五和第六艘新船将服务纳奈莫港-加比奥拉岛航线。 
 
       通过每条航线用两艘较小船代替一艘较大船的方式,顾客将会得到更加周全的服务,每小时客运量增加,汽车排队减少,安全得到保障,当地道路拥堵情况也得到缓解。通过相同空间增加客运量的方式,还能避免占用绿化空间增加码头设施面积。

BC Ferries Orders 4 Hybrid-Electric Vessels
 
Canadian ferry owner and operator British Columbia Ferry Services Inc (BC Ferries) has made a further order of four additional electric-battery hybrid Island Class vessels from a major European shipyard.
 
The ferry corporation announced that Damen Shipyards Group of the Netherlands has been awarded the contract to build the new vessels.
 
Project cost for the four latest Island-class vessels is about $200 million, including financing and project-management.
 
According to a release, BC Ferries’ procurement process resulted in 18 bids from international shipyards, with a shortlist of nine shipyards invited to participate in the detailed bidding process. No Canadian shipyards expressed interest in competing for the contract.
 
With the extension of the partnership between BC Ferries and Damen now confirmed, Damen will extend its agreement with Point Hope Shipyards of Victoria, B.C. to provide technical and warranty support for the new vessels with their local staff.
 
“Our Clean Futures Plan spells out our strategy to reduce GHG emissions by replacing our legacy carbon intensive fossil fueled vessels with ships using clean energy,” said Captain Jamie Marshall, BC Ferries’ Vice President, Business Development & Innovation.
 
“These next four Island Class ships are a major step in our plan to progressively lower emissions across the fleet and be a leader in the energy transition to a lower carbon future,” Marshall added.
 
The Island Class is a battery-powered ferry. When electric charging technology matures to make electricity available in the quantities required, BC Ferries will operate these new ships as all-electric ferries, using clean energy. In the interim, these ships will use an on board low sulfur diesel hybrid system.
 
The agreement with Damen is a design-build, fixed-priced contract that provides BC Ferries with substantial guarantees related to delivery dates, performance criteria, cost certainty and quality construction.
 
The first two Island Class vessels will be deployed on the Powell River – Texada Island route and the Port McNeill – Alert Bay – Sointula Island route by mid-2020.
 
The third and fourth new vessels will service the Campbell River – Quadra Island route and the fifth and sixth new ships will serve the Nanaimo Harbour – Gabriola Island route by 2022.
 
By replacing one larger ship with two smaller vessels on each of these routes, customers will receive more frequent service, increased passenger capacity per hour, reduced vehicle line-ups, improved safety and reduced congestion on local roads. It also eliminates the need to consume more green-space to increase the size of terminal holding compounds by moving more traffic through the same amount of space.
