Watch: Launch of First Dual-Fuel LNG Ferry in North America
Watch the launching of the first Dual-Fuel LNG Ferry built in North America. Built by Davie Shipbuilding, Hull 723 has been built for the Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ).
It is not only the first ferry to run on liquefied natural gas (LNG) in North America but also the first ship of any kind to run on LNG in Canada. By choosing natural gas as the fuel for its new admiral-ship, the Société des traversiers du Québec is reaching an important milestone in the Québec maritime transport sector and paving the way for local shipowners to use a proven, high-performance and cleaner technology.
The use of liquefied natural gas makes it possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 25%, compared with marine diesel, in addition to almost completely eliminating fine particle emissions and other air pollutants. LNG motors are also quieter and produce less vibration, which is more respectful of marine life. Read more here.
