Seaspan Shipyards

May 15, 2015

Seaspan Shipyards is a world-class shipbuilding and ship repair Centre of Excellence on the West Coast of Canada, with full-service shipyards in both Vancouver and Victoria that are committed to the highest customer service and safety standards. Seaspan Shipyards is certified to ISO 9001:2008 for quality, ISO 14001 for environment and OHSAS 18001 for safety by Lloyd’s Register.

At Vancouver Shipyards, we have constructed a new, privately-funded (under-budget and aheadof- schedule), state-of-the-art shipyard tailor-made to support Seaspan’s role as the Government of Canada’s National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS) Non-Combat capability provider. We now proudly operate the most modern shipbuilding facility in North America.

Seaspan’s other North Vancouver-based shipyard – Vancouver Drydock – provides a full spectrum of quality repair services and a proven track record of excellence delivering vessels on time and on budget.

Victoria Shipyards operates one of Canada’s leading ship repair businesses, including a wideranging and complex global customer base. In addition, we continue to provide service to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) as we support the rehabilitation of the Victoria-class submarines through the Victoria In-Service Support Contract (VISSC), and the refit of the Halifax-class frigates for the HalifaxclassModernization/ Frigate Life Extension Program.

Together, our shipyards’ workforce of 2,200 is fully engaged across a diversified marine business including expertise in design, new construction, overhaul, repair, conversions, alterations, life-cycle maintenance and refurbishing of Naval, Coast Guard, and a variety of commercial vessels.

As we ready to begin full rate construction on the first of three Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels (OFSVs), we are also fully engaged with the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) and RCN to support the Offshore Oceanographic Science Vessel (OOSV) and Joint Support Ship (JSS) projects.
