Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) has taken delivery of double-ended ferry ARMAND-IMBEAU II. Built by Davie Shipbuilding, ARMAND IMBEAU II is able to operate entirely on LNG. She has icebreaking capability, necessary for year-round operations on the Saint Lawrence River, more specifically the busy Tadoussac–Baie-Sainte-Catherine link near Québec. She’s entering service in October. A sister vessel, JOS-DESCHÊNES II, is expected in autumn.
