Davie making progress with first Cecon construction shipYard News // October 30, 2007
With over 350 workers and guests in attendance, the first section of the first offshore construction vessel that the company is building for Cecon was put in place at Davie Québec shipyard earlier this week.
Lévis mayor Danielle Roy-Marinelli, Davie Québec Inc. president Gilles Gagné, Teco Maritime ASA president Tore Enger, and Syndicat des travailleurs du chantier naval de Lauzon president Paul-André Brulotte spoke briefly in turn, noting the spectacular comeback of Canada's largest shipyard, acquired in October 2006 by the Teco Group.
In less than eight months, the yard has signed contracts to build five vessels - three for Cecon AS and two for Cyprus-based
company Ocean Hotel Ltd - totaling more than C$635 million, with all five vessels slated for delivery by 2010.
