Chantier and OSI team up on Canadian icebreaker programme
Chantier Davie announced on 25 February that it is collaborating with OSI Marine Systems on the National Icebreaker Centre (NIC) Polar Program in Canada.
A single ship (pictured as a concept design) will replace Canadian Coast Guard vessel CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent.
‘As Canada's only mega-facility with 50% of the country's total shipbuilding capacity, Davie is ready to begin work on the Polar Icebreaker programme immediately,’ the shipbuilder announced on 25 February.
It added: ‘An integrated build schedule will ensure the Polar complements other key programs such as the six Program Icebreakers Davie is set to build under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).’
OSI has supplied the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) patrol boats, submarines and frigates for over 20 years. It provided the integrated bridge system for the RCN Resolve-class auxiliary replenishment oiler, which was converted by Davie from the commercial ship Asterix.
