Irving Shipbuilding’s Halifax Shipyard has commenced initial builder’s sea trials for Canada’s lead Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS), the future HMCS Harry DeWolf.
The initial trials will test the vessel’s anchor handling, integrated bridge and navigation system (IBNS), fin stabilisers, Multi-Role Rescue Boat (MRRB) launch and recovery, and communication systems.
The trials will continue over the next few weeks and will be followed by formal sea trials and acceptance by the Royal Canadian Navy. This will span into the first quarter of 2020.
