The summer months at Seaspan Shipyards brought exciting progress on ships being built and modernized for Canada, as well as a bevy of cruise ship repair projects. At Vancouver Shipyards the Royal Canadian Navy’s future Joint Support Ship saw the vessel’s bridge put in place, bringing the current height of the structure to 32.2m above baseline. Vancouver Drydock this quarter saw three separate cruise ships making a stop in North Vancouver for touch-ups before embarking on their exciting summer and fall cruise schedules. At Victoria Shipyards, repair and modernization work continues on a number of different Royal Canadian Navy frigates and submarines. The Seaspan team over on the Island is currently working on HMCS Regina as part of a Docking Work Period for the Navy. Unfortunately, work at the shipyards has been halted due to picket lines set by the 165 Canadian Merchant Service Guild tugboat captains and engineers on strike.
