Thales Awarded Potential $4B Canadian Ship In-Service Support Contract

Thales Group has secured a potential 35-year, $4.13 billion contract to provide in-service support to the Canadian navy’s fleet of Arctic offshore patrol and joint support ships.

The contract has an eight-year base period valued at $633 million and work will include refit, repair, maintenance and training services, Thales said Thursday.

The company estimates the contract will contribute more than $198 million to Canada’s economy through research-and-development efforts in the predictive maintenance, life-cycle management and logistics support analysis areas.

Thales has supported the Canadian navy’s Victoria-class submarines, Kingston-class maritime coastal defense vessels, Iroquois-class destroyers and Halifax-class frigates over the past 50 years.
