Davie Shipbuilding announced on October 16 that the converted civilian container ship Asterix has been launched at its Quebec Shipyard to begin sea trials in preparation for delivery to the Royal Canadian Navy later this year.

The interim AOR ship’s safety, quality, systems and functionality will be tested against the high military standards and specifications which it has been built to, the company said in a press release. The vessel has been installed with key military equipment such as the Integrated Navigational and Tactical System, NATO-compliant Replenishment-At-Sea systems and the naval Integrated Platform Management System.
