    QUEBEC, June 9 /CNW/ - Croisière Charlevoix proudly announces that the
engines of the Grand Charlevoix, a boat built in the province of Québec by the
Recherches et Travaux Maritimes Construction (RTMC) shipyards are now fitted
out with a new very ecological water system, a major first on the St. Lawrence
and in Canada as well. That's what Mr. Pierre Tremblay, Croisière Charlevoix
Vice-president announced, during a demonstration of this new technology in the
Port of Québec City.
    By integrating this new water system, the percentage of pollution
generated by the Grand Charlevoix will decrease by over 80 % (NOx: measure of
the harmful effects of pollution on the environment), thereby delivering a
happy mixture of ecology and economy. The diesel fuel consumption and CO2
production will be reduced by more than 30%.
    The development and implementation of this new system were done in
Charlevoix. Already, thanks to its Alpha Power Jet drive, low diesel fuel
consumption, low noise and low wave-generating profile, the use of recyclable
materials in its manufacture and the recovery and processing of waste water
aboard, the Grand Charlevoix's features make it by far the most ecological
whale watching cruise boat in Charlevoix.
    The functioning of the engines thus includes diesel fuel and a water
feeding system.
    Please take note that all the Croisière Charlevoix boats, four Zodiacs
and of course, the Grand Charlevoix, are water powered by the addition of
these new systems.
    Welcome aboard the Grand Charlevoix or the Croisière Charlevoix Zodiacs:
a nature experience at its ecological best. Boarding for these cruises is at
Saint-Siméon, the whale watching capital.
