Quebec Report 4 - Davie Delivers

The much maligned and often troubled Davie shipbuilding facility in Lévis, QC has delivered its first new ship under new ownership, a state of the art DPIII offshore construction vessel. I caught it earlier this summer as it was returning to the yard after trials. 

Soon after, it sailed to the Mediterranean to take up a charter. Built as Cecon Pride for Norwegian owners, it has been renamed Micoperi Pride by its charterers, the large Italian construction firm.

Since coming back to life under new owners, the yard known simply as Davie, has completed this ship and is hard at work on two sister ships. Work on the trio had been stalled when previous owners were unable to make a go of the yard. They are aslo building tow LNG powered ferries.
