New electric ferries expected to arrive in Victoria tomorrow

New hybrid electric ferries are expected to arrive in Victoria tomorrow.

B-C Ferries says the design of the Island Class vessels reduces underwater radiated noise and lowers emissions.

B-C Ferries president Mark Collins says the anticipated arrival of the ships that left Romania on November 20th marks a major milestone in the plan to lower emissions across the fleet.

The vessels are expected to service the routes of Powell River-to-Texada Island, Port McNeill-to-Alert Bay and Sointula by the middle of the year.
