Seaspan Shipyards Current Programs


    HMC FELEX is an ambitious Royal Canadian Navy program to modernize the twelve Canadian Patrol Frigates. Victoria Shipyard’s portion of the program is made up of two major contracts, which take place simultaneously; the HMC FELEX contract with Canada and the Combat System Integration (CSI) Subcontract with Lockheed Martin.


    The Canadian Navy’s Victoria-Class consists of four – 2400-ton diesel-electric submarines. They are ex-Royal Navy submarines built in the United Kingdom as the Upholder class designed to operate in the international waters bordering Greenland, Iceland, and the United Kingdom, often referred to as the GIUK gap.

    In October 2011, the Government of Canada formed a partnership with Seaspan’s Vancouver Shipyards to build future state-of-the-art Non-Combat vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard and Royal Canadian Navy. Vancouver Shipyards will build up to 17 vessels, worth $8B CDN, at our facilities in North Vancouver over the next 10 to 15 years.
