At Babcock, finding innovative ways to improve the way we work is at the core of our business. From developing our own technology and platforms, to utilizing existing assets in new ways, we make the most of our international expertise and Canadian experience. This extends into every program we support, including the Victoria In-Service Support Contract.
In the fall of 2018, Babcock was awarded a contract for aerial firefighting by the Government of Manitoba. The Wildfire Suppression Services Contract was issued by the Manitoba Department of Sustainable Development for a period of ten years.
