LNG-powered ferry gets Navis positioning system
La Société des traversiers du Québec’s F.A-Gauthier vessel, the LNG-powered ferry built by the Fincantieri shipyard in Castellammare di Stabia, was supplied with the Navis Engineering’s Nav DP 4000 dynamic positioning system.
As Navis Engineering informed, the 133m long, 800-passenger capacity ferry is first of its type in North America. The vessel features integrated diesel electric propulsion system, with four power generators capable of running on either LNG or marine diesel oil.
The vessel, capable of service speeds of up to 20 knots has completed sea trials, the company said. It has been classed by Lloyds Register.
