Contract Worth $38 Million
Awarded Burrard Yarrows
Burrard Yarrows Corporation,
Victoria, B.C., Canada, was re- cently awarded a $38-million con- tract for the conversion and mod- ifications to two more B.C. fer- ries. The work is similar to but more extensive than that done earlier on the Queen of Van- couver and the Queen of Victoria by Burrard Yarrows.
Don Challinor, general man- ager of the company's Victoria
Division shipyard at Esquimalt, said that under the new contract, the superstructures of the two ferries will be cut horizontally from bow to stern, and the whole 1,600-ton superstructure lifted 10 feet by a hydraulic jacking oper- ation. This will provide the clear- ance for the construction of a new upper cardeck and retract- able platform decks which will increase the vehicle carrying ca- pacity of the ferries from the present 200 to 400.
In addition, the ferries will be fitted with a new bulbous bow, an extension on the stern, and will be fitted with new sponsons to meet new stability require- ments. New engines and propul- sion equipment will be installed and extensive refurbishing will be done in the passenger areas.
Roth ferries will be back in serv- ice next spring.
