SUPER SERVANT 4 just passing the Saguenay River with two new ferries on board. It would be nice to see any photos of the vessel en route Quebec City or of the ferries as they make their way to Lake Ontario.  Amherst Islander II and Wolfe Islander IV

More info:

We have seen bridges passed over the river to Ontario. This time they are ferries. The ferries (Amherst Islander II and Wolfe Islander IV) were built at the Damen Shipyard Group in Galati, Romania and are the first passenger/car ferries in North America to be able to run entirely on electricity which will reduce the amount of emissions by the equivalent of 7 million kg of carbon dioxide each year. The $61 million contract was awarded in late 2017 by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation. Wolfe Islander IV has an overall length of 98 meters and the capacity to carry 399 passengers and 83 cars and will operate in Ontario between Kingston and Wolfe Island. Maximum speed 12 knots. Amherst Islander II is 70.4 meters long and has a cargo capacity of up to 42 cars and 300 passengers. Maximum speed 12 knots. The hybrid ferries run on both electricity and diesel and have on-board generators to recharge their batteries when there are no shore stations. They have been designed to be fully operational at -25 degrees. They left Romania on August 31 and arrived in Quebec City on the evening of September 26, 2021, one week behind schedule. They were transported by the Super Servant 4, a heavy equipment carrier built in 1982. It traveled at an average speed of 11 knots. This vessel is usually used to transport yachts. It is 170 meters long by 32 wide. When submerged to load or unload cargo it can descend to 14.5 meters. The ferries will be unloaded from the carrier in the St. Lawrence River at the western tip of Île d'Orléans. They will sail by themselves to Kingston
