Ferry Main Propulsion Order for Finland's Steerprop

Press Release
Monday, October 15, 2012

Steerprop Ltd to deliver main propulsion system for a Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) passenger ferry to be built by Fincantieri.

Steerprop Ltd. has been contracted to deliver two SP 120 ECO CRP propulsors, each with a power rating of 7 000 kW. To ensure their safe operation year round, the vessel will be ice-classed with the demanding Finnish-Swedish 1 A Super ice-class notation.

Steerprop Dual-End Contra Rotating Propellers (CRP) will be fitted, and are projected to offer a significant increase in efficiency – and thus cut down on both emissions and fuel consumption.

This passenger ferry represents a new generation of passenger vessels for its future owner STQ being larger and faster than its predecessor, but despite its larger size, the vessel will be more efficient and environmentally friendly.

The new ferry is due to operate year-round in St. Lawrence Bay in Canada starting from late 2014.
