The shipping industry’s most recent demands for tug performance have facilitated an array of new designs and technologies. They also emphasize the need to minimize environmental impact. ALBION series of tugboats are versatile, having outstanding hydrodynamic performance and can be tailored to comply with specific vessel requirements. Proven design capable of developing a bollard pull of 20 t for pulling/ pushing/ alongside towing and shall be required and to provide towing assistance to ship in rivers and canals. The vessel can also be tailored under hybrid propulsion system using batteries. The tug is equipped with all latest deck machineries and navigational equipment’s. The engine room and machinery spaces are designed to be unattended. The vessel is equipped with a remote monitoring system where all the vital data from the tugs main machinery and systems shall be captured and reported to the onshore maintenance team in real time.




Albion Marine Solutions has developed and designed a multi-purpose vessel (MSMM) that fully complies with the highest safety and environmental concerns to reduce the carbon print during its operation and performance standards. MSMM vessel will enable the Coast Guard to carry out multiple missions; these vessels can deliver a wide range of programs while maximizing mission modularity, innovation, green technologies, and an adequate return on investment.

According to Albion Marine Solutions Director, Mr. Sergiy Yakovenko, "Multi-Purpose Vessels (MSMM) primarily will help in supporting a variety of missions including icebreaking, navigation aids, environmental Ecosystem marine response and search and rescue, charting, offshore search, SAR operations, hydrographic work, and payload supports."


Albion Marine is proud to be on the front lines of new electric and hybrid propulsion technologies for existing fleets and new builds. It is already a few years since we have completed a concept design for an actual zero-emission cable ferry- Albion Zero. The concept utilizes solar power and the power of river streams to generate sufficient charge for ferry operation. The ferry carries eight vehicles or two large trucks and capable of operating in shallow waters. The vessel does not need an electric grid, and it does not utilize engines during the regular process.

Director of Albion Marine Mr. Yakovenko says: “It is an elegant engineering concept specifically designed for a river crossing in remote Northern location with limited or non-existing infrastructure. Our modular design makes it suitable for a large range of ferry designs. The conversion payback period only a few years”.











Albion Marine Solutions provides a scrubber barge solution for vessels in port that helps reduce Sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and submicron particulate matter in exhaust gas regardless of vessel size and engine size. Our newly developed air abatement technology is being installed in a floating unit. It’s a unique concept for preserving the marine environment and ecosystem. The Albion Marine Solutions treatment plant floating system (Air Abatement Technology unit designed by Andritz) is propelled by a battery-powered electrical propulsion system, increasing efficiency, and decreasing operational costs. It can operate at any port or harbors located worldwide as well as in the Canadian territory.

The Floating system is designed with all safety standards and regulates as per SOLAS & IMO, and other Canadian regulations. Scrubber Barge (Air abatement technology floating unit) is equipped with all safety systems & unmanned monitoring systems that can be manned with less crew members.



ALBION FLOATING DRONE STATION: Albion floating drone station design is specially drawn to address the facilities and operating requirements of onshore drone station. Albion drone station can be used for variety of purposes such as forest fire fighting, surveying and patrolling activities near the forest and inland waterways.



23 M HYBRID PATROL VESSEL: Albion hybrid-classed patrol vessel can operate on electric and diesel engines for the Coast Guard. The vessel is designed and assembled following SOLAS, IMO, and Canadian regulations. In all weather and sea state conditions, the hull is planned and configured to counteract the sloshing effects of the wave and strengthen the vessel's seakeeping and maneuverability.




LNG PASSENGER FERRY: Albion's newly developed LNG powered ferries are designed to operate between the various ferry terminal across the Canadian inland waterways. The hull of this ferry has been optimized to achieve a low drag at high speed thereby reducing the speed and achieve maximum engine efficiency. The super structure is designed with aim of reducing the air drag and reduce resistance.  


LNG BUNKERING BARGE: Albion's LNG bunkering barges are designed to meet the increased demand for LNG at the Port of Vancouver and other core ports in Canada, covering the real needs of STS bunkering. The design is based on the inclusion of one additional segregation of LNG to the existing barge to supply gas as fuel to their vessels.




MODULAR FLOATING DRYDOCK: A floating Dry Dock of Modular type is designed to be flexible, increasing and decreasing its length to suit the client’s requirements. The floating dry dock has two cranes, safety equipment, Control Room, DG Room, Mechanical Workshops, Switch Board Room, Fire Control Room, fully air-conditioned/heated resting & recreational space & Deck Stores.  


ALBION RO-PAX HIGH SPEED HYBRID FERRY: The Vessel is designed and built as a Ro-Ro passenger ship compliant with SOLAS regulations for short international voyages in accordance with builders’ standards. Her equipment and systems are modern, energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and suitable for the transportation of passengers, trucks, and other wheeled cargoes. The Vessel is propelled using waterjets and a hybrid propulsion system in a quest to reduce carbon emissions.
