“I am very happy with the outcome of the very demanding design and construction process for this new ship due to start service in Matane, Baie-Comeau and Godbout in 2015. At 130 meters long and with a capacity for 800 passengers and 180 cars, the new ferry will be much larger and better equipped than the “Camille-Marcoux” that it will replace. The crossing will be a more pleasant experience for passengers,” said Georges Farrah, CEO of STQ.
In addition to the four main power generating sets, Wärtsilä will also supply its innovative LNGPac system. It comprises onboard LNG bunkering, storage tanks and handling equipment, as well as the related safety control and automation systems. The entire Wärtsilä propulsion solution is designed with a focus on safety and simplicity. In addition, the ferry is being built to comply with the stringent emission regulations applicable to its area of operation.
