Canada Extends Asterix Naval Support Ship Contract Until 2025



Dit bericht heeft te maken met onderstaand bericht ...  ;)  :hrmph:   ( vertragingen in de bouw van JSS 1 en 2 )

Government of Canada announces new timelines for joint support ships

The Government of Canada is committed to the National Shipbuilding Strategy and providing members of the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and the Canadian Coast Guard with the equipment they need to ensure their current and future operational effectiveness.

Today, the Government of Canada announced new timelines for the delivery of the RCN's future joint support ships (JSS).

The first JSS, which was previously scheduled for delivery in 2023, is now expected to be delivered in 2025. The second JSS, which was previously scheduled for delivery in 2025, is now expected to be delivered in 2027.

These extended timelines are related to sustained supply chain delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic and further challenges related to a first-of-class delivery.

The Government of Canada is actively monitoring progress and working with Seaspan's Vancouver Shipyard to ensure the delivery of these vessels to support the RCN.

In January 2018, under a contract with Federal Fleet Services, the Motor Vessel Asterix entered into service to provide the RCN with interim capacity while the JSS are being built. The intent is that Motor Vessel Asterix will continue to provide interim capability in advance of the first JSS delivery.

Canada Extends Asterix Naval Support Ship Contract Until 2025

The Government of Canada has confirmed a two-year extension to the At-Sea Support Services Contract for the combat support ship, m/v Asterix. The m/v Asterix has been providing exemplary worldwide service to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) since her deployment in 2018.

Over the past five years, Asterix has performed flawlessly in NATO and allied operations from the Arabian Gulf to East Africa and the Korean peninsula supporting a variety of missions from counterterrorism to sanction enforcement. The vessel has not experienced a single day of unscheduled downtime, testament to the high quality of the crew, the ship and its systems. Asterix has been widely lauded by global allied navies and described as setting the "gold standard" in naval procurement.

Given Canada's long-defined requirement for up to four permanent replenishment vessels, and the current plan for the delivery of two Protecteur-Class supply ships, extending the Asterix contract ensures the RCN can maintain essential replenishment-at-sea capabilities now and into the future.

"Locking in Asterix's capability for Canada and the NATO alliance is smart business. Its strategic capability is critical to Canada maintaining a capable, deployable, blue-water navy. The RCN can deploy anywhere in the world in response to crises, conflicts or to support humanitarian missions. Everyone at FFS, seafarers and civilians, is proud that we will continue to provide this critical capability. Asterix has rightly become a permanent and well-integrated component of the RCN fleet," said Rear Admiral (retired) Gilles Couturier, CEO of FFS.

The total optional lease period for Asterix is 10 years although Canada can declare its contractual purchase option at any time.

Asterix was converted at Davie in just 18 months from a containership to a military specified support vessel at a cost which represents real value to Canadian taxpayers. Uniquely in Canada, Asterix is operated with a combination of FFS and the RCN crew.

Canadian Navy Defends Joint Support Ship Project After Critical report...      ( ...  :confused: :omg: oeps...)

PBO Pegs Total Cost of the Navy's Joint Support Ship Project at $4.1 Billion

The Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) today released an independent cost estimate of the Royal Canadian Navy's project to build two Joint Support Ship (JSS) vessels, and an estimate of the cost of contracting similar capacity from Chantier Davie Canada Inc. (Davie). This report was prepared in response to a request from the House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates (OGGO).

The JSS project aims to build two new support ships to replace legacy Protecteur-class auxiliary oiler replenishment vessels decommissioned in the last decade. Since the two new vessels are expected to be delivered in 2023 and 2025, the federal government contracted Davie to convert a commercial vessel, the MV Asterix, to military support ship specifications to maintain the Navy's at-sea replenishment capability during JSS construction. Davie has also offered the government an option to contract a second vessel, the Obelix.

The report, The Joint Support Ship program and the MV Asterix: a Fiscal Analysis, estimates the total cost of the new JSS vessels to be $4.1 billion. This is comparable to the $4.1 billion estimate published by the Department of National Defence (which does not factor in the cost of the provincial sales tax).

The total net cost of the current MV Asterix contract is projected to be $733 million over 5 years ending in 2023. The PBO projects that total cost of a new 5-year contract for the Obelix, starting in 2023-2024, would be $801 million.

The Department of National Defence also has the option to purchase the contracted vessels from Davie.

"Net of any costs associated with this initial contract, we estimate a total cost of approximately $1.4 billion for the purchase of the two Davie vessels", explained Yves Giroux, PBO. "This is lower than the cost of new vessels under the JSS project."

An assessment of the capabilities of the Asterix and Obelix as commercial vessels converted for military purposes versus those of the built-for-purpose JSS vessels is outside the scope of this report.

These estimates do not assume any COVID implications on the costs or schedule of the JSS.

Government of Canada Awards Contract for Construction of Joint Support Ships for Royal Canadian Navy 
( hadden misschien beter even bij onze KM kunnen kijken naar onze JSS Karel Doorman ontwerp.... )

Today, the Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement, and the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence, announced that Canada has taken an important step toward delivering the RCN's future fleet, by awarding a performance-based contract to Seaspan's Vancouver Shipyards for the full construction of two joint support ships (JSS).

Valued at $2.4 billion (including taxes), this contract will allow the transition to full-rate construction of the first ship, the construction of early blocks for which began in June 2018, and then the second ship.

The JSS will deliver fuel and other vital supplies to vessels at sea, offer medical and dental services, and provide facilities for helicopter maintenance repair. The presence of replenishment ships increases the range and endurance of operations at sea, allowing Canadian combat ships to remain at sea for significant periods of time without going to shore for resupply.

"We continue to work closely with the Canadian shipbuilding industry and its associated sectors during this unprecedented time for our country and the world. I commend the dedicated workers across the country for their continued perseverance in delivering on critical federal shipbuilding projects. This contract award is yet another example of our ongoing commitment to the National Shipbuilding Strategy, which is supporting a strong and sustainable marine sector in Canada," said Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement.

"Our government continues to deliver on Strong, Secure, Engaged, with this contract marking an important milestone for our women and men in uniform. These new ships will provide a necessary capability for our Royal Canadian Navy, while providing significant economic benefits and jobs to Canadians, including thousands of jobs created or sustained right here in Vancouver and across Canada. An impressive amount of work has already gone into the construction of these new ships, and I look forward to their arrival in the coming years," said Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence.

"I am pleased to see yet another milestone happen this year for our future joint support ships. With these warships, the Royal Canadian Navy will be able to operate with even greater flexibility and endurance. These ships will not only form part of the core of our naval task groups, they also represent a vital and strategic national asset that will enable the Navy to maintain its global reach and staying power," said Vice-Admiral Art McDonald, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy.
