Ocean TundRA 100
Isle-aux-Coudres, July 11, 2012 – Ocean Industries Inc. announces the construction, starting this summer, of the most powerful harbour tug ever built in Canada. This new construction is made possible by the financial assistance of Industry Canada through its Structured Financing Facility program. This financial support awarded to Océan Remorquage Côte Nord Inc., who ordered the ship valued at $24M, represents approximately 15% of the construction cost.
Ocean Industries announced last April the construction of a 25-meter tug valued at $10.6M and is also currently completing the finishing touches of a trailing suction hopper dredge evaluated at $25M.
The construction of the new tug will provide over 230,000 working hours for the shipyard, which will help maintain the 160 jobs.
