WoodFibre LNG Hotel Ship and Hiring in Around Town

February 15, 2024

Crews for the WoodFibre LNG construction project near Squamish will have the opportunity to live in a converted 154-metre ferry. The 652 cabin floating hotel arrived at the Port of Nanaimo last week as a staging ground before its departure to the project site.

The Vancouver-based Bridgemans Services Group, which owns the ship and three similar vessels, says the ship has sewage and water treatment systems, industrial heat pumps, and the ability to run on shore power from the BC Hydro electricity grid. 

The company considers the vessel the most comfortable and sustainable accommodations for the natural gas project’s non-local workforce. Crew will be onboard at all times to ensure inspect the ship and ensure fire, water and other safety systems meet Canadian regulations.

The LNG project is currently hiring project managers, engineers, and site supervisors. This project is the first to recognize a non-treaty Indigenous government (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw) as a regulator on an industrial project along side the provincial and federal government.
