Steerprop Ltd. to deliver main propulsion to an Italian-built passenger ferry

Steerprop Ltd. has been contracted to deliver main propulsion system to a passenger ferry due to be built for Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) by the Italian Fincantieri. The contract represents an important step for Steerprop Ltd. in delivering more powerful main propulsion to passenger vessels than before.

The passenger ferry represents a new generation of passenger vessels for its future owner STQ in several ways. The vessel will be larger and faster than its predecessor, but despite its larger size, the vessel will also be more efficient and environmentally friendly through usage of innovative technical solutions to improve total efficiency. A part of this efficiency will be due to the propulsion system used. The vessel, ice-classed by Lloyd’s Register in the Finnish-Swedish 1 A ice-class will operate year round in St. Lawrence Bay in Canada starting in late 2014.

Steerprop Ltd. has been contracted to deliver two SP 120 ECO CRP propulsors. Each of these propulsors has a power rating 7 000 kW. To ensure their safe operation year round, the propulsors will be ice-classed in the demanding Finnish-Swedish 1 A Super ice-class. Utilizing the high efficiency Steerprop Dual-End Contra Rotating Propellers (CRP), these propulsors are projected to offer a significant increase in efficiency – and thus cut down on both emissions and fuel consumption.
