BC Ferries Order WESMAR Thruster

BC Ferries MV Tachek

WESMAR to supply BC Ferries, with a  dual prop, counter-rotating, bow thruster for the  T-Class Passenger/Car ferry 'M/V Tachek'.

M/V Tachek transports cars and passengers among the popular Gulf Islands and the WESMAR Model V2-24, 150 HP AC system will enhance the 162-foot ferry’s maneuvering and docking capabilities, in the waters off Vancouver Island, where the growing traffic of pleasure and commercial vessels crowd the waters, particularly during tourist season.

The M/V Tachek,  built in 1969, is undergoing an upgrade project estimated to extend her operating life  and save fuel. She is one of many Canadian ferries providing a life-line to island residents and visitors to Canada’s unique and majestic Gulf Islands. Among her routes is the 1.2 nautical mile crossing between Denman and Hornby, every hour. 

MV Tachek was taken out of service in December 2012 and is scheduled to return in October of 2013. She has a car capacity of 30 and a passenger and crew capacity of 150.
