Canada’s biggest shipbuilder, Chantier Davie Canada Inc. announced the delivery today of the Cecon Pride, a 130-meter-long 28 meter wide, DP3-equipped multi-purpose offshore construction vessel.   This ship is also the biggest vessel built in Canada in 25 years and the most complex commercial vessel ever built in a North American shipyard according to Davie’s CEO, Alan Bowen.

Cecon Shipping notes the vessel has already been renamed Micoperi Pride and will depart at the next high tide for the Mediterranean and her first contract for Italian contractor Micoperi, where she will do construction work for ENI.  Two more ships of the same design have been contracted to be built at Davie over the next two years.

Cecon’s chairman, Riulf Rustad, commented:

“We would like to thank Davie and its employees for the successful delivery and for going above and beyond to ensure the vessel was ready for deployment straight onto her first contract, eliminating the need to carry out the extra mobilization works in Europe. The new management of Davie has delivered on its promises.”
