Alion Science and Technology‘s Ottawa-based subsidiary Alion Canada will support that country’s 30-year plan to develop new ship platforms and address long-range plans for non-combat vessels on a team awarded an $8 billion contract.
Alion and its team members will provide ship design and engineering on vessels including a joint support ship, the Polar Icebreaker, the offshore oceanographic support vessel, and the offshore fisheries science vessels.
“NSPS is intended to provide enhanced security for our Canadian neighbors, which will also benefit us here in the U.S. and throughout the Western hemisphere,” said Bahman Atefi, chairman and CEO of Alion. “In addition, these programs will create thousands of new jobs, providing a boost to the global economy. This is a proud moment for Alion and our partners, and we are ready to begin.”
