Hornblower Contract for Trinidad Ferry Fleet

Monday, December 22, 2008

Hornblower Marine Services (HMS) announced that the National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO), a Trinidad and Tobago state owned enterprise, has awarded HMS the contract for the Trinidad passenger fast ferry fleet in the southern Caribbean.

“The Water Taxi Project of the National Infrastructure Development Company is intended to reduce traffic on the heavily traveled North-South corridor between Trinidad's two largest cities,” said Hornblower Vice President of Operations Gary Seabrook. “The service is commuter-oriented and will begin operations with four high-speed passenger vessels with four additional vessels added over the next two years as other routes are included to the service. Hornblower Marine Services, Trinidad-Ltd. will operate the ferries on behalf of NIDCO and is pleased to be following up our Bahamas Fast Ferries experience with a second Caribbean opportunity.”

The four-boat operation will route from Port of Spain to San Fernando. There will be one large vessel holding up to 400 passengers with three smaller vessels carrying up to 150 passengers each. Each water taxi trip will last approximately fifty minutes. The ferry service is scheduled to begin in December, 2008.
