15 Jun 17. Davie prepares Resolve-class oiler for delivery, eyes new conversions on the horizon. Quebec-based shipyard Chantier Davie has almost completed its Project Resolve auxiliary oiler replenishment (AOR) conversion, company executives have told Jane’s. The Resolve-class AOR, a converted Greek container ship, is an interim solution to provide the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) with a replenishment-at-sea (RAS) capability until the new Queenston-class Joint Support Ships are completed in the early 2020s. The RCN lost its own RAS capability in 2014 with the retirement of the last Protecteur-class AOR, and the delay in procuring Joint Support Ships led to a capability gap that the Resolve class will help alleviate. The Greek container ship was acquired for CAD30m (USD23m) and the conversion will cost approximately CAD400m. In the meantime, the RCN has been leasing three auxiliary vessels and crew from Chile and Spain. The Chilean vessel, Almirante Montt, operates on Canada’s Pacific coast, while Spanish vessels Patino and Cantabria operate on the Atlantic coast. Davie’s Resolve class has a displacement of 26,000 tons, an overall length of 182.5m, and can carry up to eight small craft such as rigid-hulled inflatable boats or fast rescue craft. There are two hangers for two embarked CH-148 Cyclone helicopters and a landing deck capable of supporting heavy-lift helicopters such as the CH-147 (CH-47) Chinook. The AOR has a crew of 150 and can also carry up to 350 passengers as part of a humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) complement. The vessel has capacity for up to 10,500m3 of marine diesel and 1,300 m3 of aviation fuel.
Fraser Spencer, CEO of Federal Fleet Services, and Alex Vicefield, a director at Davie, told Jane’s that Project Resolve is more than 90% complete. “The steelwork is now complete, construction of the accommodation area on board is finished, the supplementary engine has been installed, and the bridge is almost done,” Spencer said.
