Babcock Canada (Babcock), a world leader in submarine support, has signed a Technical Cooperation Agreement with HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd (HD HHI) to collaborate on the Canadian Patrol Submarine Project (CPSP).
The CPSP was established by the Canadian Department of National Defense to research procurement options for Canada’s next generation submarines.
This Technical Cooperation Agreement enables both leading marine organizations to share their respective capabilities in shipbuilding and submarine sustainment in support of the CPSP.
Babcock is a global expert in maintaining, modifying, and extending the life of in-service submarines, supporting Canadian, UK, and Australian Navies.
HD HHI will leverage its world-class construction capabilities, while Babcock will contribute its expertise in providing in-service support and sustainment of Canada’s Victoria Class submarines, which it has been doing since 2008.
John Howie, Babcock’s Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, signed the agreement alongside Young-seuk Han, Vice Chairman & CEO of HD HHI, at the International Maritime and Defence Exhibition (MADEX) in Busan, South Korea.
