HMCS Corner Brook
Since 2008, Babcock Canada has been providing In-Service Support to the Royal Canadian Navy’s fleet of Victoria-Class submarines. This critical work includes the provision of platform design, integration, configuration, project management services, and maintenance and waterfront support, ensuring complete lifecycle engineering support.
Babcock Canada is currently undertaking the deep maintenance work period for HMCS CORNER BROOK. Through an integrated approach, Babcock is bringing together key stakeholders to provide In-Service Support to four Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) Submarines, including deep maintenance, short work periods and interim docking periods.
The Submarine life cycle includes an “operational period”, where it is available to the fleet for operations and undergoes short work periods and interim dockings to complete 1st and 2nd line ongoing maintenance. Deep 3rd line maintenance or Extended Docking Work Periods (EDWPs) are when the boat undergoes extensive surveys, repairs and major capability upgrades.
