Meridian Marine Industries Inc. has inked a deal to handle warranty work for B.C. Ferries’ three new Salish-class vessels that were built in Poland.
The Richmond company on the Fraser River will represent Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A., the huge shipyard that built the Salish vessels.
James McFadden, Meridian president, can’t say yet how much work will come out of the deal.
The 351-foot Salish Orca, Eagle and Raven all arrived in B.C. in 2017 and carry two-year warranties. They serve the Southern Gulf Islands-Tsawwassen and Comox-Powell River routes, replacing the Queen of Nanaimo and Queen of Burnaby.
