According to RDSH Chairman and CEO Michael Nugent "the partnership between Roadships and STX Canada Marine will provide collaborative benefits for both corporations. STX offers ‘Ecorizon’ the strategic environmental plan, based on STX Europe's latest innovations and continuous R&D. The five point plan focuses on water, waste, energy, emissions and sustainability.
