Imtech Marine Canada (IMC) has been awarded its first subcontract of the extensive Canadian government National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS) Program for the engineering of an Offshore Fisheries Science Vessel. Imtech Marine takes responsibility for the ships’ platform automation, electrical solutions, electric propulsion and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and has started the first engineering activities.

In October 2011, Imtech Marine announced its involvement in the realization of the extensive NSPS program as a technology partner of Seaspan Vancouver Shipyards.

The NSPS program involves the construction of a number of navy and coast guard research vessels. Imtech Marine is involved in the noncombat section, which is expected to comprise two Joint Support Ships (JSS), each having a length of 175 m, an 85-metre Offshore Oceanographic Science Vessel (OOSV) that will conduct oceanographic research along Canada’s eastern coast, as well as three Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels (OFSV’s) that will conduct research into the fish stock and the development of local ecosystems along both the western and eastern coasts of Canada. Seaspan will also be building a 140-metre long polar icebreaker.

Stefan Nieuwenhuys, NSPS Program Manager for Imtech Marine Canada, said, “As a partner of Seaspan in this OFSV project for the Canadian Coast Guard, we will bring in our expertise for the ships’ automation, electrical infrastructure, electrical propulsion and air conditioning and climate control systems, as well as platform system integration.”

“Imtech Marine has been active in the Canadian market for more than 22 years,” Nieuwenhuys added. “Our acquisition of Techsol Marine (Quebec) mid-September 2011 and the local presence of Radio Holland Canada (Vancouver and Halifax), now called Imtech Marine, as well as the integration of the electrical design team of Canadian company DCMT (David Clarke Maritime Technologies) gives us a solid position to work on this program with local people. This is supported by the expertise which Imtech Marine built up over the years in various naval and commercial projects in Europe.”
