Irving Shipbuilding Inc. has bought the former Maritime Steel and Foundries Ltd. steel fabrication site in Dartmouth as part of its plans to gear up for the $25-billion dollar federal combat ship procurement contract, reports 'The Chronicle Herald'.

According to documents filed with Property Online Nova Scotia, title to the 2.4-hectare site at 605 Windmill Rd. was transferred from Cameron Corporation Ltd. to Irving Shipbuilding in June. Citing Irving spokeswoman Mary Keith, 'The Chronicle Herald' reported that the company wouldn’t disclose the purchase price, which was rumoured to be about $13 million.

There has been considerable construction reported at and around the Halifax shipyard, including partial demolition of a retaining wall on Barrington Street and the installation of a marine slip, which is thought to be tied to the federal warship program. Keith added that Irving will outline details of its plans to modernize and upgrade its Halifax shipyard to accommodate the mammoth 21-vessel combat ship contract within the next two weeks.
