HaiSea Wamis-1

The first of three ElectRA battery-powered tugs have been delivered to LNG Canada, with another two LNG RAStars to follow.

Two other tugs were also ordered from Sanmar as a result of the HaiSea joint venture between shipyard owner and shipbuilder Seaspan and the Haisla Nation, an indigenous Canadian community in Kitimat, British Columbia, where LNG Canada, which is 40% owned by Shell along with Petronas (25%), PetroChina (15%), Mitsubishi (15%) and Kogas (5%), has its LNG production plant.
