Aker Yards Marine Supports AOPS Project

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

Aker Yards Marine Inc. (AYM) is a member of the team assembled by BMT Fleet Technology Limited that has been awarded the Definition, Engineering, Logistics and Management Support (DELMS) contract for the Canadian Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) project. The Canadian navy will acquire between six and eight ice-capable patrol ships to assert and enforce sovereignty in Canada's waters, including the Arctic.

During the definition phase (2008 - 2009) AYM will utilize its experience and expertise in the design of patrol vessels and icebreakers to support the BMT team in the development of an illustrative definition design for the AOPS.  The definition design will allow the PMO to refine and validate the ship specification and statement of work to be used in the selection of the contractor for project implementation.

The AOPS project builds on AYM's experience developing cost effective offshore patrol vessel designs for the Royal New Zealand Navy and the Irish Naval Service.  AYM will be supported by the considerable expertise available within the Aker Yards Group in the design and construction of ice going vessels including the resources of Aker Arctic Technology Inc. (AARC) in Helsinki, Finland and Aker Yards in Langsten, Norway.  Aker Yards designed and built the Norwegian Coast Guard icebreaking offshore patrol vessel KV Svalbard which will be a valuable reference for the AOPS project.
