The Department of National Defence (DND) appointed Babcock Canada to conduct an Extended Docking Working Period (EDWP) for Her Majesty’s Canadian Submarine (HMCS) CORNER BROOK under the Victoria In Service Support Contract (VISSC).
Babcock Canada Inc. and Barnacle Systems Inc, based in Victoria, BC, have partnered to support Barnacle’s completion of a hardware product, BRNKL Black, an internet of things hub that collects, stores, and processes onboard data from engines, power systems, and other critical systems alongside video feeds.
In March 2017, HMCS Chicoutimi was preparing to undertake a busy operational schedule. During work-ups, a defect was identified below the waterline in one of her main ballast tanks, which are used to adjust submarine buoyancy.
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.
March is National Engineering Month and as a recognized leader in the delivery of engineering support solutions in Canada and around the globe, Babcock is proud to be celebrating this month by highlighting Hannah Beynon, Junior Systems Engineer- Naval Architecture
