A new LNG-fuelled ferry, which was launched at the Fincantieri shipyard in Naples last month, was classed by Lloyd’s Register, the company said. The ferry represents the latest generation of ferry that Fincantieri is building for Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ), a Québec government corporation that operates in maritime passenger transport.
The ship, F.-A.-Gauthier, is scheduled for delivery in late 2014 in Canada and it will be the first ever gas-powered ferry built in Italy and the first such vessel to operate in North America.
