FLYING WHALES partner with Chantiers Chibougamau

FLYING WHALES is pleased to partner with Chantiers Chibougamau for the transportation of wood in Quebec.

This partnership, signed during an official meeting at the Délégation générale du Québec in Paris, is designed to establish the foundations of a collaboration and integrate airship transport into the logistical solutions of the manufacturer.

Chantiers Chibougamau is a key player in Quebec’s wood processing industry. To limit its impact on ecosystems and biodiversity, the fundamentally innovative company is designing new transport schemes using the LCA60T airship.

The transport of chips between its factories and of large-scale prefabricated wood elements is considered. In addition, FLYING WHALES is exploring the use of Chantiers Chibougamau’s Nordic carbon-negative solid wood materials for the construction of its infrastructures on North American soil.

Many thanks to Ms. Michèle Boisvert, General Delegate of Quebec in France and representative of the Prime Minister of Quebec for francophonie, for her warm welcome and presence at the signing ceremony.

We would also like to thank Frédéric Verreault, Executive Director, Corporate Development at Chantiers Chibougamau, for his bold vision, resolutely focused on the future of transportation.
