Quebec City-based shipping conglomerate Desgagnés has taken delivery of Paul A. Desgagnés, an LNG-fueled product and chemical tanker. 

The vessel is the third in a series of four product carriers built to a Desgagnés concept at the Besiktas shipyard located in Yalova near Istanbul, Turkey.

Paul A. Desgagnés can actually run on LNG, heavy fuel oil or marine diesel, the company said in a statement.

It is double-hulled and holds a Polar 7 ice class allowing for navigation in ice-laden waters.

With a deadweight of 15,000 tons at 7.8 meters draft, Paul A. Desgagnés cargo tanks can hold up to 17,505 cubic meters at 98 percent capacity.

The Paul A. Desgagnés represents an investment exceeding $50 million, of which almost $9 million are solely dedicated to the dual-fuel/LNG motorization.

Québec Transport Ministry supported the construction of the vessel with a total of $3 million.

The vessel is scheduled to leave the Turkish shipyard on Thursday, November 22 and is expected to reach Canada during the first half of December.
