The Canadian Department of National Defence has issued a contract to Navamar for five ship-to-shore connector systems. The $12 million contract was announced on 6 September.

The connector systems will be fitted on the Royal Canadian Navy’s Joint Support Ships, among others, providing an enhanced and robust capability to transfer cargo and equipment from the ship to the shore.

The modular and configurable ship-to-shore connectors will adapt to a range of missions, including being used as a temporary jetty anchored to the shoreline, as a large barge to assist in ship maintenance and repair, or to perform evacuation operations.

Harjit Sajjan, Canada’s Minister of National Defence, said: 'This investment will allow the Royal Canadian Navy to provide support where vessels cannot berth, to deliver relief supplies for people in need, and to accomplish the difficult work we ask of them.

‘The ship-to-shore connector systems will provide greater flexibility to our CAF and become a key component of mission success.’
