RoRo Ferry Delivered

Wednesday, October 10, 2007
Toronto Port Authority recently took delivery of a new 100ft steel car/passenger Ro-Ro ferry. Hike Metal Products Ltd. won the contract in 2006 amid local competition. The new car ferry is part of a re-structuring program by the Toronto Port Authority to revitalize the City of Toronto Island Airport which included the repair of slips, two new two-level terminals and the new two-level 100 passenger / 15 vehicle car ferry. The new ferry, rendering an older vessel obsolete, is powered by twin caterpillar C12, developing 450HP at 1880 rpm which drive Ulstein 360degree drive legs at each end and on center line. Two 45KW generators provide electrical power while underway for ship’s services and heat (being the main load ). The vessel is designed for year round operation including ice conditions which will be encountered in Toronto Harbor.
