Versatile Vickers Awarded Refit Contracts Worth $15 Million From Canadian Navy

Versatile Vickers Inc. of Montreal, one of Canada's most experienced naval ship repair yards, was recently awarded two refit contracts worth approximately Can.$20.5 million (approximately $15 million).

The most valuable of the contracts, worth Can.$13 million ($9.5 million), is to carry out the ninemonth refit of the HMCS Preserver, a Canadian naval tanker/supply ship. The job entails the general overhaul of the vessel, docking, painting and the overhaul of the main auxiliary machinery and miscellaneous equipment.

The second contract, worth Can.$7.5 million ($5.5 million), is to carry out similar refit work to the HMCS Saguenay, a Canadian Navy destroyer. The vessel is already at the Montreal yard and the contract will last approximately six months.

Versatile Vickers is part of the Versatile Corporation which is now one of the largest shipyard operators in Canada. Besides Versatile Vickers, its other shipyard interests include Versatile Pacific Shipyards Inc. with yards at Vancouver and Victoria, and the Versatile Davie yard at Quebec.
