Davie Shipyard Overseeing Confirmed Order for Two Ferries

The Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) announces the conclusion of an agreement to build two ships for the Tadoussac-Baie-Sainte-Catherine crossing with Chantier Davie Canada.

These two new ferries for the Tadoussac crossing, manufactured in Lévis, at a total cost of $125 million, will be delivered successively in the spring and summer of 2015. Measuring 92 meters long, the new vessels will be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG), which will allow some gains in terms of greenhouse gas emissions.

With eight rows on two decks, each ferry will be able to transport more than 100 vehicles, including spaces for tractor-trailers.

Construction is expected to begin in late 2013.

” At STQ we are pleased to go ahead with the construction of the two ships avant-garde technological and environmental ideas that will position us as the leader in green technologies in the operation of ferries in America North,” said Georges Farrah, President and CEO at STQ.
