MV ASTERIX is nearing completion and is now happily back in the water, undergoing trials by her builder, Davie Shipyards in Quebec, shortly this magnificent ship will began Royal Canadian Navy trials in preparations to turn her over to the Navy.
Built as an Interim AOR by Davie and Federal Fleet Services as Project Resolve. ASTERIX will supply RCN ships in various national and international operations. She is a modern, state of the art behemoth, designed for sailors, by sailors. I had the privileged to tour this incredible ship, during her unveiling in July 2017.
Below is a series of photos I took of the exterior of ASTERIX while she was still in the Champlain Dry Dock at Davie Shipyard in Levis, PQ. This is one of a series of Blog Posts on ASTERIX, see the end of the blog for related posts.
Unless otherwise stated in the captions all photos were taken during ASTERIX’s christening ceremony at Davie Shipyard in Levis, PQ on 20 July 2017.
Finally two comparison photos, on the left is ASTERIX shortly after arriving at Davie Shipyards in October 2015 for conversion and on the right, how she appeared in July of 2017 nearing completion. The transformation of this container ship has been absolutely remarkable!
