New joint venture to bid for Canadian contract

15th November 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems and Irving Shipbuilding have formed a new joint venture organisation that will bid for Canada’s Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS) and Joint Support Ship (JSS) In-Service Support (ISS) programme. The new joint venture, named Canadian Naval Support Limited (CNS), was introduced on 11 November.

The Canadian government announced in 2015 that it would establish an ISS programme that combines the AOPS and JSS ISS requirements into a single, 35-year through-life contract. 

The AOPS and JSS are two new classes of vessels being built for the Royal Canadian Navy. The first AOPS is scheduled to be delivered in 2018 and the first JSS in 2019.

Work on the ISS programme will include management, documentation and information, engineering, logistics, and maintenance including docking work periods.

The contract award is expected in 2017.
