Thursday, November 15, 2001
GE Canada has signed a commercial maintenance and logistics support contract with Canada's Public Works Government Services. Under this multi-year contract, GE will provide maintenance and logistical support services for the Canadian Navy's fleet of LM2500 aeroderivative gas turbines used to power Halifax-class patrol frigates.

"This is a unique contract because it represents GE's growing trend to provide both military and commercial marine customers with single-point sourcing and comprehensive maintenance solutions," said Pierre Ayotte, Director, Government Programs for GE Canada.

The contract will provide the Canadian Navy with a decrease in administrative functions such as procurement, inspection and technical support and material and inventory management associated with the LM2500.

The scope of the Canadian Navy's contract includes: Repair, overhaul and engineering support; Parts warehousing and inventory management (including spare engines, supply of spare parts and replenishment Support of Canadian Forces naval engineering school training curriculum for on-engine and equipment maintenance; Operational level maintenance; Configuration management; and Supply and distribution of technical manuals.

Backed by GE's extensive network of global field service technicians, the Canadian Navy will have access to GE service depots located throughout the globe, providing on site technical support 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. "The contract should provide the Canadian Navy with more predictable maintenance costs, and a lower total cost of ownership for their fleet of 24 installed LM2500 gas turbines and six spare engines," added Karl Matson, general manager of GE Marine Engines, Evendale, Ohio.
