For this contract, Navamar will put forward the expertise it has acquired as a major Canadian supplier of custom-built marine equipment. “Navamar has extensive experience in modular workboats, from design to manufacturing. Over the years, we have provided our commercial clients with reliable equipment that perform under strenuous conditions. And now, we are proud to provide the Canadian Armed Forces with our extensive modular shipbuilding knowledge and expertise. Additionally, the local marine industry will benefit from this substantial contract,” says Alain Thériault, president of Navamar.
The Sea-to-Shore connectors are to be used onboard Joint Support Ships (JSS) to support a variety of operations such as disaster relief efforts or Joint Task Force (JTF) operations. This modular vessel could be deployed when required, providing enhanced sea-to-shore shuttle capability when port infrastructures are lacking or insufficient.
The contract valued at CAD$11.7 M will secure approximately 20 working positions.
