Commissioner Approves Technical Specifications for RFP for New Intermediate Class Vessels

Pursuant to Paragraph 1(b) of Commission Order 13-01, BC Ferries has satisfied the commissioner that:

  1. a fuel efficiency target has been included in the technical specifications for the proposed new vessels and reflected in the procurement documents; and
  2. the concerns of ferry users regarding the open deck design of the new vessels have been taken into account when finalizing the technical specifications for the new vessels and such design will have no significant impact on service levels on the routes where these vessels will be deployed.
