Canadian engineering and construction group SNC-Lavalin announced that it has been awarded a two-year extension to its existing contract, valued up to $180 million, to continue providing in-service-support (ISS) to the Royal Canadian Navy’s minor warships and auxiliary vessels.

The contract awarded to SNC-Lavalin in 2011 was an initial four-year contract that included options to extend the duration of the contract up to another four years. Following two previous one-year extensions in 2014 and 2015, the Government of Canada has now added an additional two-year extension, bringing the contract to September 2019.

With responsibilities including new designs and repairs, to ship hulls and installing remote-control defense equipment, SNC-Lavalin provides support to 25 different classes of vessels, totaling a fleet of 76, including the Kingston-class, Orca training vessels, tugs, dive, and auxiliary support barges and vessels.

“We have competitively bid on and successfully won three consecutive In-Service-Support contracts for the Royal Canadian Navy,” said Ian L. Edwards, president, infrastructure, SNC-Lavalin. “Our ship operations and maintenance team offers world-class expertise and they are proud to play a vital role in the ongoing maintenance of the Navy’s minor warships and auxiliary vessels.”
