Icebreaker upgrade program

Icebreaker upgrade program


Davie, together with Babcock Canada Inc., has completed the upgrade and refit of two of the Canadian Coast Guard’s largest icebreakers. The upgrade and refit of CCGS Louis St Laurent and CCGS Des Groseillers involves the replacement, upgrade and installation of various systems as well as structural maintenance on the vessels as part of their mid-life modernizations. Ranging from new engines to the installation of complex electrical equipment, these upgrade programs have enabled these Canadian Coast Guard vessels to conform to marine regulatory requirements, allowing the Coast Guard to pursue their work in the Arctic and within Eastern Canada.
