Project Resolve is the conversion of the container vessel M.V. Asterix to an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) ship to support the Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN) interim supply ship capability requirements.

Providing support to Project Resolve will be Lloyd’s Register’s (LR) naval technology expertise and complex conversion experience. LR will support the conversion process from the development of a safety certification regime with the Flag Administration and approval of design plans through to on-site supervision at Davie and commissioning of the new AOR ship.

As a provider of classification services to navies, as well as to commercial shipping, and with a 160-year history in Canada, LR said it possesses the capability to support the project. This naval capability, married to deep technical experience in structural, machinery and service requirement integration, provides the technical assurance that Project Resolve requires, LR said.

LR’s Technical Support Office in Burlington, Ontario will be responsible for design approval and an onsite team at the shipyard in Levis, Quebec will provide class supervision and support through the conversion process.

Bud Streeter, President, Lloyd’s Register Canada Limited, commented, “This is a challenging, exciting and important engineering project. We are ready and able to provide the support that Davie and partners need to help ensure that the end result is a safe, reliable AOR ship that is fit for purpose.”
