Incentives for marine LNG vessels

FortisBC has committed to $68 million in incentives for marine vessel owners and operators who will be purchasing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from FortisBC — and we have more funds available.

These incentives help cover the incremental cost of upgrading to an LNG-powered vessel, compared to the equivalent vessel operating on marine gas oil or intermediate or heavy fuel oil.

Eligibility requirements

Vessels eligible for incentive funding include:

  • trans-pacific or coastal freight vessels that can call any port or point of destination along the North American West Coast
  • marine vessels (e.g. oil/chemical tankers, bulk carriers, car carriers and roll-on/roll-off vessels) calling any ports along the North American West Coast
  • bunkering vessels

Applicants who receive incentive funding will be required to purchase LNG from FortisBC.
