In the space of just a few weeks, two, 81-metre road ferries for the Canadian ferry operator BC Ferries have been launched at Damen Shipyards Galati and are now being fitted out ahead of entering service next year. Once operational they will be capable of carrying up to 300 passengers and crew, and 47 vehicles.

These vessels are fitted out with a full electric propulsion system. Damen R&D researched the various propulsion options and put forward the full electric solution as the best combination of durability and economy, in which the owners were pleased to agree.
