Stellar Marine Secures Order From BC Ferries

Wednesday, May 31, 2006
Stellar Marine has entered into an agreement with BC Ferries to begin the installation of ESP 1000 speed pilots on the major vessels of its fleet, following the evaluation of an ESP 1000 on the Queen of Alberni. BC Ferry Corporation chose Stellar Marine’s ESP 1000 to assist in its efforts to reduce the impact of fuel costs on its operations, as well as the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Stellar Marine is a division of Stellar Research Corporation based in Nanaimo BC. The ESP 1000 is an engine control system that uses advanced computer technology to maximize propulsion efficiency while maintaining vessel’s operating requirements. For over 10 years the ESP system has been used on vessels as small as 2,000 hp tugs all the way up to 65,000 hp container ships.
