The Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) in San Francisco, US, has taken delivery of the third of its four environmentally friendly ferries from Kvichak Marine and Nichols Brothers.

The M/V Scorpio can run at 25kt at 85% of engine maximum continuous revolution.

The vessel features low wake wash and shallow draft hulls to reduce the vessels impact on the shoreline and ocean bottom, and an emissions reduction system for the diesel engines.

WETA said the vessel’s exhaust emissions have been reduced by 85% of the current EPA Tier II requirements.

The ship will join the fleet of two vessels delivered earlier this year, the M/V Gemini and M/V Pisces.

The vessel also includes a CCTV system, voyage data recorder, added CEDs onboard and additional life saving apparatus.
