Naval Large Tug

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System

Objective

To provide sufficient large tug capability to the Queen’s Harbour Masters in HMC Dockyards Halifax and Esquimalt to support naval operations over a 25-year horizon.

Requirements

This project will provide four new Near Coastal Voyage Class 2 tugs built in Canada to a proven, in-service Commercial off the Shelf design. The tugs will have a minimum of a 25-year life expectancy on entering naval service. They will meet Transport Canada standards and Classification Society certification requirements. The tugs shall operate throughout the year in the wind, wave, tide and current conditions found in Canadian coastal waters. The tugs shall be capable of operating throughout a 24 hour day, in both unrestricted and restricted visibility as defined by the Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. In Halifax and Esquimalt harbours, they will perform harbour tasks in sustained winds of 25 kts from any direction and in currents of up to 2 knots in any direction. The tugs will operate within 750 nautical miles of their respective home ports and conduct both in-harbour and out-of-harbour operations. The tugs will be equipped to provide an afloat Fire-Fighting capability.
