LÉVIS, QC, April 9, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - Davie Shipbuilding today welcomed the arrival of the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent, Canada’s largest icebreaker.
The CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent, which has provided vital icebreaking capabilities to the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) for over 50 years, will undergo major Vessel Life Extension (VLE) refit work for three months before re-entering service. This represents the first phase of the VLE program for the CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent, which will keep the ship operating until the new Polar Class icebreakers, announced by the Government of Canada in May 2021, enter service beginning in 2030.
