WSF Hybrid-Electric Olympic Class Ferries SBE Opportunities

Vigor is engaged in design and engineering for Washington State Ferries to allow future Olympic Class ferries to be built as hybrid-electric. Vigor will subsequently build up to five Hybrid-Electric Olympic Class ferries over the next eight years. To accomplish construction of these vessels, we have a need for multiple trades and professional firms certified as Washington State SBE (Small Business Enterprise) or DBE (Disadvantaged Business Enterprise) certifications per OWMBE. We welcome partnering with firms/trades that are marine oriented or are otherwise able to perform the work required. Please note that all certified SBE and DBE firms for this program must also be "in-state" businesses, pursuant to RCW 39.26.010.

To learn more about becoming certified as an SBE or DBE, visit the Washington State Office of Minority & Women's Business Enterprises (OMWBE) website.
