Seaspan Inks Two Vessel Deals

Canadian Minister of Public Services and Procurement, the Honourable Judy M. Foote, announced the signing of two new contracts valued at more than USD 65.4 million with Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards.

The contracts are for the construction of the Canadian Coast Guard’s Offshore Oceanographic Science Vessel (OOSV) and the Royal Canadian Navy’s Joint Support Ships (JSS).

“Today is an exciting day for Seaspan and marks a major milestone for the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) as we continue to re-write shipbuilding history in Canada,” said Brian Carter, President of Seaspan Shipyards. “This announcement is a strong reminder of the progress being made under the NSS. Its impact will continue to increase opportunities for Canadian companies and provide jobs for Canadians that flow from our delivery of vessels to the Canadian Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy.”

With the new OOSV and JSS contracts now in place, specialized parts such as propulsion systems, scientific equipment, generators and steel can be ordered prior to start of construction, the company said.
