New Icebreakers for Canadian Coast Guard

571 icebreaker


The Government of Canada has announced that it will be procuring six new program icebreakers to replace the current aging fleet of CCG icebreakers.  A new competitive process, through an Invitation to Qualify, to add a third Canadian shipyard as a strategic partner under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS) is being launched. Through the Invitation to Qualify, the Government of Canada will establish a short list of pre-qualified shipyards that will be eligible to submit a formal proposal to become the third strategic partner under the NSS, joining Irving Shipbuilding Inc. and Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards. Interested suppliers have 15 days, starting today, to respond to the Invitation to Qualify.
