sword It designs and builds Canada’s first heavy-duty polar icebreaker in more than 60 years, drawing on the strengths of its multidisciplinary shipbuilding team for a project developed under Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).

The company has already cut the steel to build a prototype, because before full construction can begin, it is developing a prototype block to test new systems, processes, personnel and tools required to work with some of the very thick specialized steel required to build a ship of this type.

Lessons learned from building the prototype block will be used to help improve the quality and efficiency of the ship’s design and manufacturing process when production begins in late 2024.

“Cutting the steel on the prototype block prototype is a major milestone for the Polar Icebreaker program and demonstrates Seaspan’s capabilities in engineering, design, supply chain, planning and production. The prototype is just one example of the team’s dedication to continuous learning and improvement as we prepare to begin construction at full speed.” Martin Edwards, Program Manager, Seaspan Shipyards.
