Irving's Halifax Shipyard wins massive contract

2011-10-20

Halifax Shipyard of Irving Shipbuilding was the big winner of the massive federal government contract of $25 billion announced on Oct. 19 for building 21 Canadian Navy combat ships while Seaspan Marine's  Vancouver Shipyards has been awarded an $8 billion contract for seven non-combat vessels. No shipyard was allowed to win both major projects.

Losing out in the intense bidding process was the Davie shipyard of Lévis, Quebec that was recently taken over by a consortium comprising SNC-Lavalin, Daewoo of South Korea and Upper Lakes Group.

But the latter will still be eligible to bid on further contracts worth about $2 billion for building smaller ships. Under a procedure that was well-defined, the two successful shipyards on the two main contracts will not be eligible to bid on the contract involving smaller vessels.
