Canadian Navy Adm. Hopes New Ships to be Built in Canada

Thursday, June 15, 2006
CBC News has reported that the Canadian navy's top admiral in the Atlantic region hopes that new supply ships the government is planning to buy will be built in the country. Rear Admiral Dan McNeil said the Joint Support Ships contract, expected to cost about $2.1 billion, could help revitalize the shipbuilding industry at a time when the navy needs other vessels and the coast guard also requires new craft. It is said that a request for proposals to build the three 28,000-ton ships should be ready later this month. Two of the three consortia expected to bid for the work have said they will build in Canada. One consortium involves the Irving shipyard in Halifax. Source: CBC
