The M/V Asterix is also ready to receive a ballast water treatment system once IMO regulations come into force.Asterix is a former containership which arrived at Chantier Davie’s shipyard in Lévis for conversion into an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) ship in October 2015. M/V Asterix is set to enter into service with the Royal Canadian Navy by the end of this year.“We’re delighted to welcome Federal Fleet Services,” commented David Bolduc, Green Marine’s executive director. “We visited the vessel at the Davie shipyard and were impressed by all of the attention to detail that went into this conversion.” Back to overview,Home naval-today M/V Asterix becomes Canada’s “greenest naval ship” M/V Asterix becomes Canada’s “greenest naval ship” View post tag: Davie Shipbuilding December 4, 2017 View post tag: Royal Canadian Navy View post tag: Project Resolvelast_img read more
