WSF is seeking proposals for hybrid-electric vessel construction


Washington State Ferries is  moving toward a hybrid-electric ferry system to reduce greenhouse gases and improve local air quality. WSF recently released a Request for Information for design-build teams to build five new hybrid-electric vessels. These new ferries, along with plans for 11 future vessels, are required to be built in Washington in accordance with state law.

Interested firms are invited to submit voluntary responses by 5 p.m. Aug. 29. WSF expects to issue a Request for Proposals in October.
