Canada: STQ Orders Two Dual-Fuel LNG Ro-Pax Ferries

STQ Orders Two Dual-Fuel LNG Ro-Pax Ferries

Chantier Davie Canada Inc. (Davie) yesterday announced the conclusion of a two ship order from La Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ).

The two dual-fuel LNG Ro-Pax ferries will operate on the St. Lawrence River on the Tadoussac-Baie-Sainte-Catherine route and shall enter service in 2015.

 Alan Bowen, CEO of Davie commented: “This project has been a long time in the planning and we are very excited to now begin construction. The dual-fuel LNG engines are a perfect fit with Davie’s specialization in advanced propulsion and vessel maneuvering systems. The ferries will provide an environmentally friendly solution for the province of Quebec for many years to come“.

 At 92 m long, each vessel will have over 625 lane meters across two decks, allowing the transport of over 115 vehicles and 10 heavy goods vehicles.
