Desgagnés took delivery on April 30 of the M/T Rossi A. Desgagnés, a state-of-the-art, new-generation tanker whose construction was just completed; she is the last in a series of four custom-built tankers, based on an original concept developed by Desgagnés.
It is to be noted that the M/T Rossi A. Desgagnés joins the M/T Gaïa Desgagnés recently acquired by the company; these two investments alone exceed $100 million Canadian.
The company now owns five dual-fuel/LNG tankers. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) offers undeniable advantages, allowing, among other things, a significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions and reducing particle emissions to practically zero.
The M/T Rossi A. Desgagnés will soon be leaving Turkey and is expected in Canada in mid-June.
