Davie Shipbuilding delivers LNG-powered ferry
Davie Shipbuilding has delivered the LNG-powered ferry Armand Imbeau II, a project that has been in development since before 2012.
This is the first vessel of its kind to be built in North America. Construction and operations rules and regulations had to be developed during the vessel’s construction in order to cater for its new type of propulsion system.
Since 2014, Davie has delivered three major vessels. In 2014, Davie delivered Pride, a subsea construction vessel used to perform works at more than 3,000 metres below the sea surface. Earlier this year, Davie also launched the naval vessel Asterix.
