3 FEBURARY 2020 – Halifax, NS – The National Shipbuilding Strategy continues to deliver on its commitment to equip the Royal Canadian Navy with the ships needed to serve Canadians, while bringing jobs and prosperity to communities across the country and revitalizing Canada’s marine industry.
IMP Naval & Land Services has recently signed a contract with Ocean Industries Inc. to provide Integrated Logistics Support (ILS), including Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) engineering, Technical Publications and Configuration Management, in support of the design and build of four Naval Large Tugs. The Naval Large Tug project is intended to replace the Royal Canadian Navy’s 5 civilian-crewed Glen-class large tugs and the 2 Fire-class rescue boats. The new tugs will provide towing, firefighting and other critical support services to both Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Dockyards Halifax in Nova Scotia (MARLANT) and Esquimalt in British Columbia (MARPAC).
This project is the latest win for IMP in the Naval domain and the company is extremely proud to continue to provide support to the Royal Canadian Navy through, in this case, our partners Ocean Industries Inc.
