L3 MAPPS has secured a contract from Seaspan Shipyards for work on the Royal Canadian Navy’s new Joint Support Ships (JSS).

The contract has been awarded to support Seaspan’s work on naval supply ships under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).

Seaspan Shipyards CEO Mark Lamarre said: “The NSS is drawing on the expertise of Canadian suppliers from across Canada.

“L3 MAPPS’ innovative work on the Joint Support Ship programme demonstrates the capabilities of the domestic supply chain that Seaspan Shipyards is building while creating highly-skilled, middle-class jobs for Canadians.”

Under the contract, L3 MAPPS is required to provide the integrated platform management system (IPMS) for JSS.

Using advanced computer-based technology, the IPMS will control and monitor platform machinery and systems on board JSS.

“L3 MAPPS’ technology will enhance the operational effectiveness of JSS and make it a safer vessel for its crew, other Royal Canadian Navy sailors, and the environment.”

L3 MAPPS president Rangesh Kasturi said: “L3 MAPPS’ technology will enhance the operational effectiveness of JSS and make it a safer vessel for its crew, other Royal Canadian Navy sailors, and the environment.

“L3 MAPPS pioneered the development and evolution of the modern IPMS and is a world leader in the supply of automation and control systems, as well as turnkey training solutions for naval vessels.”

So far, Seaspan has awarded more than $690m in contracts to Canadian companies under the NSS.

The Royal Canadian Navy’s JSS, known as Protecteur-class ships, are currently under construction at Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards.

Construction on the ships started in June last year and the first vessel, the future HMCS Protecteur, is expected to be delivered in 2022/23.

The JSS will be deployed to provide underway support to naval task groups, transporting and delivering cargo to support task group operations and operations ashore, as well as support to combat, humanitarian and disaster relief operations.

L3 MAPPS, which has been serving Royal Canadian Navy for over 35 years, is a Tier 1 supplier in the service’s Halifax-class frigate upgrade programme.
