Reward for high level of reliability [CANSEC2016D1]

25 May 2016

Cincinnati, Ohio-based GE’s Marine Solutions (Booth 1721) has received a contract extension from Public Services and Procurement Canada under which it will provide maintenance and logistic support services for the Royal Canadian Navy’s (RCN’s) inventory of LM2500 gas turbines.

A total of 24 LM2500 gas turbines are in service with the RCN, providing boost power for the service’s 12 Halifax-class frigates.

The company was awarded an initial five-year LM2500 support contract by Public Services and Procurement Canada in 2001. It was renewed in 2006 for five years, in 2011 for three years, and again in 2014 for one year. The availability of the RCN’s LM2500 fleet has averaged 99.85 per cent over this period.

The most recent contract extension covers a further year of technical support and service provision. This includes on-site 24/7 support, repair, overhaul and engineering support, parts warehousing and inventory management (including spare engines, supply of spare parts and replenishment of inventory), field service representative support, support to maintainer training, operational level maintenance, configuration management, and the supply and distribution of technical manuals.
