Following a "Crane Naming Contest" circulated amongst schools in North Vancouver, Seapan officially revealed the name of its newly assembled 300-tonne gantry crane at Vancouver Shipyards before a gathering that included the Grade 4 student, Ella Tinto, who came up with the winning name.  The crane was given the Squamish name Hiyí Skwáyel, which translates to "Big Blue."  Hiyí Skwáyel is to be a permanent fixture on the north shore marking the significance of Vancouver Shipyards participation in the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy.
