RNCC092 Vice Admiral Henry George “Harry” DeWolf (RNCC 1918)

Mega-blocks rollout for future HMCS Harry DeWolf

Over the past weekend, the Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) project completed another significant production milestone with the movement of the future HMCS Harry DeWolf’s first two of three mega-blocks from inside the Halifax Shipyard’s Assembly and Ultra Hall facility to the exterior land level construction point. During production, each Arctic and Offshore Patrol Vessel consists of three mega-blocks that will be joined together to form the overall vessel. On the weekend the stern and centre mega-blocks of the ship were moved by heavy lift transporters to the outside construction area  where they will be joined together for further outfitting.

The bow mega-block will be moved in the fall.

The second ship, HMCS Margaret Brooke, is also in full production at the Halifax Shipyard where at the height of production four ships will be built concurrently.

The AOPS project will deliver five to six ships to the Royal Canadian Navy as part of the National Shipbuilding Strategy’s combat vessel work package.

Déplacement des méga-blocs du future NCSM Harry DeWolf

Au cours de la dernière fin de semaine, le projet de navire de patrouille extra-côtier et de l’Arctique  (NPEA) a atteint un autre important jalon de production qui consistait à déplacer les deux premiers méga-blocs du futur navire NCSM Harry DeWolf  depuis l’intérieur du centre d’assemblage du chantier d’Halifax vers le point de construction extérieur de niveau terrestre.  Au cours de la production, chaque navire de patrouille extra-côtier et de l’Arctique est construit en trois méga-blocs qui seront réunis afin de former le vaisseau complet.  En fin de semaine, les méga-blocs formant la poupe et le centre ont été déplacés par de grands transporteurs de charges lourdes en direction du secteur de construction extérieur où ils seront joints ensemble et feront l’objet d’ajustements additionnels. 

Le méga-bloc de la proue sera déplacé cet automne. 

Le second navire, le NCSM Margaret Brooke, est aussi en pleine production au chantier d’Halifax où quatre navires seront éventuellement bâtis en même temps.  

Le projet de NPEA permettra de livrer de cinq à six navires à la Marine royale canadienne dans le cadre du projet de vaisseaux de combat de la stratégie nationale de construction navale.

RMC team complete Nijmegen

Joint Task Force Nijmegen Commander – 18787 Colonel Geoff Abthorpe

A 11 member team – two staff and nine cadets from Royal Military College of Canada were among more than 200 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members who completed the Four Days Marches Nijmegen in the Netherlands last week.

Commanded by 18787 Col. Geoff Abthorpe, the CAF contingent marched 40 km every day for four days. At the conclusion of the March, the contingent participated in a 5 km victory parade attended by thousands of spectators who cheered on the Canadian soldiers.

This year marked Canada’s 65th year taking part in the Marches.

“I am so impressed by the strength of character that our marchers demonstrated once again this year at Nijmegen. Our teams were well prepared, and persevered through heat and rain to complete this physical and mental challenge, and I am very proud of each member of the contingent,” said the Canadian contingent commander.

While in Europe, the CAF members also commemorated Canada’s First World War legacy with ceremonies at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France, and at the Passchendaele Canadian Memorial and the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, Belgium.

Additionally, a ceremony was held on the third day of the Marches at the Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery in the Netherlands, to remember fallen Canadians from the Second World War.
