New Connection System to Navy September 9, 2019

Canada will acquire five ship-to-shore connector systems. The National Defence Department of Canada has released a statement on its official website to announce a contract of approximately $12 million to acquire five ship-to-shore connector systems that will support such missions. These systems will be built in Canada by Navamar Inc. These ship-to-shore connector systems, vessels such as Joint Support Ships of the Canadian Navy will have an enhanced and robust capability to transfer cargo and equipment from the ship to the shore.

Of the five ship-to-shore connector systems that will be acquired by the Royal Canadian Navy, four will be kept aboard our two Joint Support Ships, the fifth one will be available for maintenance work and be used for training. The modular and configurable ship-to-shore connectors will adapt to almost any mission. They could be used as a temporary jetty anchored to the shoreline, as a large barge to assist in ship maintenance and repair, or to perform evacuation operations.
