BMT Fleet Technology pushes forward with Canadian JSS option
BMT Fleet Technology has announced that it has been awarded a 12-month, $9.8 million design project to further develop the Contract Design as one possible option for the Canadian Forces’ (CF) new Joint Support Ship (JSS).
The development follows the company’s successful completion of the JSS Preliminary Design. The award of JSS Contract Design is a significant milestone in nearly a decade of close cooperation with the JSS Project Office.
The Joint Support Ship (JSS) project is a Government of Canada capital acquisition project to replace the Royal Canadian Navy’s ageing Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) ships. Canada's current procurement strategy includes the assessment/evaluation of two design options: a bespoke design developed by BMT Fleet Technology and an existing, off-the-shelf design of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems’ Berlin Class.
BMT Fleet Technology of Ottawa, Ontario has been supporting the JSS project since December 2002 through a series of individual taskings issued under an Engineering, Logistics, and Management Support (ELMS) Services Contract. These taskings have included a broad range of engineering and design studies analysing and addressing such areas as system requirements, Naval Ship rules, concept design, ship performance modeling, general arrangements and layouts, pollution control, crewing concepts, system operations, ship sub-systems design, in service support concepts and through life cost analyses.
