The vessel will be based at the Denman West terminal and will be hooked up to three cables laid between Vancouver Island and Hornby Island. BC Ferries crews will undergo training through September. Once certified by Transport Canada and Lloyd’s Register, the ferry will enter service this Fall. An open house is planned for the Fall.
