Excellent NSS News

The keel laying of the second Joint Support Ship (future HMCS Preserver) on 27 October was a very happy event for the navy and the Armed Forces. It seems to indicate that the Seaspan Shipyard has got its production procedures running well.  It is noteworthy that nearly half of the ship’s structural components are currently under construction or already completed.  Thus, we should be able to expect that the actual building of the ship will proceed relatively quickly. Construction of the first JSS, the future HMCS Protecteur, is expected to be finished in 2025, while the second ship has a completion date of 2027.

If only we could have a third and fourth JSS – HMCS Provider?  HMCS Portage?  One can always hope!
