Irving Shipbuilding's AOPS Tier 1 Suppliers

For significant programs, Irving Shipbuilding appoints Major Subcontractors to execute major work packages, typically including the design and supply of complex systems. 

In the case of the Artic Offshore Patrol Ships (AOPS), five Major Subcontractors were selected with the exceptional capabilities and experience needed to provide large work packages sub-contracted by Irving Shipbuilding from the Definition Contract. This Contract was signed by Irving Shipbuilding with the Government of Canada in March 2013, and included in its scope the design, validation and integration of the AOPS and all of the complex equipment and systems on the vessel.

As Canada’s Prime Contractor for the AOPS project, Irving Shipbuilding selected a team of exceptional, experienced subcontractors to fulfill the mandate of the design phase.

In January 2015, the Government of Canada announced the award of the contract for the Production of the AOPS to Irving Shipbuilding following on from the Definition Contract. This award then triggered negotiations for the production of the AOPS with the Major Subcontractors and other potential suppliers.
